    prop ding sounds normal.

    My power valves rotated on the trailer but when i disconnect the powervalve motor, i found that the valves where difficult to turn. I had cleaned them but i didnt do a great job because i didnt remove them. Thats when i found them sticking again.

    I would say take a look there and see if that is an issue for you. If it is make sure you completely remove them and clean them.
