On adding brake fluid: I just replaced all of my boat trailer hyd cyl
after only 3 yrs occasional use. Brake people tell me if I want to denture
future replacement they recommend replacing the fluid every year ( brake
fluid attracts moisture ). They also recommending replacing auto fluid -
maybe not quite as often.
Just thought I would pass on in that it sounds like a good flush now & then
would be recommended.
