Default Working but....

It's going up and down now (with a little elbow grease) but it moves in an irregular motion. Is there something i should do?

look to see if it is binding at the zplate when in up position, also there is a small air valve in line at the manifold , probably a tiny silver dial type,, these control air in and out, make sure it is the right one and not the one for the lift

You need to adjust your air pressure on the side of the spindle (not at the compressor). When facing the front of the spindle, look over on the right side of the unit and you will see two small round knobs that the small plastic air lines are a part of. Upon closer examination, you will see the knob marked with an arrow for "+" and another for "-". Keep adjusting it bit by bit until you have a continuous smooth "up/down". If still not sure where, ask Luke or Michael to email you a picture of the adjustment. I had to do this as well and it is to do every time we take our boot off to run lids.
