Once closed up and tank refilled with all rams in, operate affected circuit and repeated in strokes/out strokes the circuit will exhaust all air into the sump tank and out. To relieve pressure, remove cables from pump and carefully open the affected circuit, only outflow will be drainage. You must take power from pump.

So VincU.. To relieve pressure..Disconnect power to leveling unit... And when you say open circuit..are you referring to slowly cracking a line open and letting the pressure relieve itself?? If so how much pressure are we talking about??

Thanks again

Yes the pump could start otherwise if still connected. Break fitting on defective hose with drip pan.

Check my post under the thread "Lippert Jacks, Orange Hoses". I just replaced my hoses, and it was pretty simple. Relieving pressure wasn't an issue, and the system self bleeds.
