If it`s not leaking fluid, I would think that a bad valve is letting the fluid bleed back to the reservoir.

You need to do a rebuild on the trim cylinder. Easy to do your self. If it's a twin do both cause the other is'nt far behind. Otto

I guess the question is how do you trouble shoot to see if its the trim pump of the cylinders, sounds like other have had the same problem and it could be either..
