I'll attach the list to call, you need to talk to I think her title is parts manager on the list I'm attaching. I got my glide strips in a week after talking to her. I'm sure you have how to adjust it but I included that to. I think it's page #8 that you want. Her title is parts administrator her name is sherry.( that's who took care of me) She will get you what you need Don't give up yet, but it is a PIA It is probably the tilt adjustment that is causing your problem.
Thank you. I have not given up yet. I'm going to give FR a call per your recommendation. After the glide strips go on I'll make the necessary adjustments per instructions. Thanks again.

Learned a very important lesson about those self expanding/shrinking hoses. I was moving the hose out of the way of movers (seeing as he stepped on it once with no regard). In my rush, I shut off water and then popped the quick connect to separate 2 hoses - something I've done with regular hoses many many times. It exploded water everywhere (even past my half-cupped hand to block myself). Drenched my shirt.

So did the quick connect fail or did the hose?

Or was it operator error?

Totally idiot operator. I shut off the hose so that I could move it. When I popped the quick connect (to remove that section of hose), water just exploded. Surprised the crap out of me that these shrinky-dink hoses hold so much pressure.
