    Default Place diverter is weak/slow to trim up

    Trim up all the way on my hydraulic PD while underway the rooster tail will barely get out of the water. On the trailer the nozzle struggles to go much more above halfway, if you grab it and "help" it up it will go all the way up. I don't see any fluid leaks so I don't think the hydraulic ram that moves the nozzle is blown. The pump itself has full fluid. All the solenoids are on tight.

    Where would be the first place to start or what parts to replace? I did notice the plastic line going into the lower part of the ram has a fairly bad kink in it right before the screw-on flare fitting...

    Tom? lol

    The Kinked line could be an issue , but Id first check the available voltage to the pump with an accurate multimeter call if questions Tom

    Voltage looks good, power and ground straight to the battery. It kind of just started doing this outta the blue. Im thinking the kinked line or worn hydraulic ram not powerful enough anymore? It's only one upward movement (ram extending). trimming down is no issue.

    Tom do you sell just the hydro lines?

    I had the same problem on my day cruiser a couple of years ago. I replaced the ram and a couple of solenoids and that did not fix the problem. The pump actually got weak, it still puts out pressure but not enough.

    One way you might be able to verify this is to reverse the hydraulic lines and see if the problem reverses. If it does you can conclude that it takes more pressure to raise the diverter than to lower it. The new pump comes with the solenoids.

    if you have any questions please feel free to give me a call
