So, a couple months ago, my driver side power pole was down while sitting gin the garage. Upon investigation, the hydraulic line that controls the "up" action had popped free of the pump. I bought a new ferrule, reattached the line, filled the hydraulic fluid to the original level, and haven't had a problem since. Today, my passenger side pole was on the ground in the garage. SAME PROBLEM. So I fixed it just like the other one. My question is this. Is this something that just happens and every couple months I'm gonna have to fix it, or is this something that the original installer is at fault for, and by fixing the problem correctly I shouldn't have the problem any more? Would REALLY hate for one of those lines to pop off in the act of running down the lake.

Something not right. Might want to call powerpole. But I can tell ya mine have deployed at 70mph. They will be ok.

I'm done with power pole. Buying 2 new Talons soon. I have replaced a pump after it dumped hydro fluid inside by battery/bilgecompartment, huge mess. Got it all cleaned up installed new pump, bled the hydro lines, etc. Now, not even a year later one of the nipples is leaking fluid. I have to clean everything again and deal with, refilling/bleeding the lines. Not an issue with Talons.
