    I have a Mini Fastrack 15/36 and I noticed an oil spot on my trailer where it was parked. It was right next to the left tire and about 1-1/2" wide. I looked under and felt around the hydro and the only place I could feel any oil was from the breather tube. Is this something to be concerned about?

    Since the MFT uses the EZT hydros, can the oil level be checked and topped off?

    Well, that is much easier said than done. The plug at the top of the hydro will NOT budge at all, and since they appear to be brass, it rounded out. I tried the other hydro's plug as well and the same thing. Not the brightest design to put brass plugs in an aluminum body. I tried an easy-out and that didn't work either.

    I guess I will have to take it to the dealer and be out of commission for a while. Not happy about that. The oil level is low. I pulled off the breather tube attachment and stuck a wire in the hydro to find out what the oil level really is and it appears to be low.
