Checked all my fluids and I am out of power steering fluid again. I knew it seemed very hard to steer when I loaded it last Monday. Now I gotta find where the leak is coming from. Does anyone have any Idea on the best place to start looking for the leak. I filled it two weeks ago and have put 10 hours on it since then. There was a lot of pressure in the reservoir when I opened the cap.

There must be a power steering pandemic this year because I am having the same problem and saw a few posts on a Four Winns Facebook page about the same thing. Sorry I can't offer any help, I haven't figured mine out yet.

On my Funship a few years back, I was losing PS fluid also. The dealer replaced my PS pump thinking maybe it was blowing past the cap (wrong). Turns out it was leaking at the steering ram behind the engine.
You could try adding some of the leak detection dye to see if you can identify the leak using a black light.

BTW, also a good idea to let us know what boat you have.

My boat is a 2006 New Horizon. I'm gonna learn how to post pics soon so I can take a before and after pic of my wax job.
