Customer: It will go down if I put weight on it but it seems soft and I can lift the unit back up with hands. It goes up just fine and it holds
JA: Is there anything else the Marine Mechanic should be aware of?
Customer: The reason I rebiuld the rams and spool is cause it would sag. If would raise the unit over night it sag to the ground.
