One ram moves easier than the other, the seals and packing are just a bit more snug is all and isn't detrimental.

Hydraulics are just like electricity, going to find the path of least resistance.

Have a safe trip OldCoot and your DW. Many thanke for all the great advice you give on this forum.

Thanks, but some would disagree with you on the advice.
Getting ready to put the awning in, lock it for travel and hook up. Leave early tomorrow (well, sometime after sun light), 580+ miles and only 3+ days to make it.

All hooked up, brake tested, lights checked, TOWTA loading last minute items. Then just put the slides in and go. No doubt we'll forget something, always do which is why we have 2 or 3 of the same things when we get home.
