I have a 2012 MTO Sport. The trim loses pressure in flight and I am having to add pressure frequently. On the ground the pressure holds. I have checked all the connections that I could find. Any ideas of where to look for the problem?

Put a little dishwashing liquid and water in a spray bottle. Spray all of the connections while it's pressurized and I bet you'll find it.

Thanks Eric, that was my next step but wanted to be careful not to damage anything around the electrical wad near the compressor.
