Default HWH tank

On the return trip from the Maine rally noticed hyd fluid leak from right rear corner. It turned out to be the leveling system reservoir tank had loosened up then split at the bolt holes.
If I had kept the bolts tight it wouldn't have moved and cracked but never gave that system any thought.
After some research and a couple calls to HWH a new tank and o-ring arrived. The new tank is shorter but still has enough capacity and the system is back running.

Get a long extension and a 1/4 socket and go snug up that reservoir. Save yourself from a messy nasty repair job.
Hope this helps somebody out.

Paul glad you are back running, question was it possible to have the tank welded, if nothing it's a good spare.
