Are you connected to shore power? On the electric systems it's best to be connected to shore power to maintain adequate voltage. I don't know if that's true for the hydraulics or not.

This must have been a manufacturing defect that had to be corrected. This is the first I've heard or seen of this particular issue. It's not likely to be a common problem. That's not to say that...

I believe that part of the issue with PNW pricing is a simple matter of logistics. The further you are from the Manufacturing plant, the more it costs. I priced a few different transport companies...
