There is usually a little slack in the actuator when you first push back, but after that, it should be very hard to make the actuator move by hand. You might still have air in the system. Lower the...

You can buy a 4 ft x 8 ft x 1/2" piece of PVC board at Home Depot for $75. It's very similar to Starboard in the respect that it can be cut, routed and drilled. It's white and water proof. But, you...
