A two year build comes to an end at last  :o still have a problem to get all the monitors pumping due to kinked tubes :(( so may just have to settle for the front one working.

Thank you kind sir  :embarrassed: it was quite a mission to complete as it is stuffed full of Action electronics gear as well as 2.5 kg of lead ballast.  The rush  {-) to complete it was so that I was not too old to actually lift it  %%

Hi there

I have an old one of these and have no issues with kinked tubes, where are your problem located ?

The problem stems from the electronics packed into it.  They cover the entire open space above the battery banks (and under the forepeak as well).  So there is not much head room for the tubes to bend nicely and they tend to kink.  I may experiment with some hard plastic elbows to get round the problem.
