The new love of my life is a Colorado XT. The only problem, is I am having a heck of a time with the valves. Here is the post I made on my other site, seeing if anybody here can solve the mystery:
"Well, I am slowly gettin' my pontoon together, and am starting to get frustrated using the valve that came with the boat. The valve style is a "Halkey Roberts valve". So, supposedly it has a setting that will allow air in, but not out. I have yet to figure this out.
When I turn it a quarter turn (clockwise) I get the valve up, and can fill it with air even though air is trying to escape. When "down", I can't pump it up?
The problem with this is that when you get it nice and firm, you have to QUICKLY close the valve, and even then it looses it's firmness that fast.
Any idea as to what I am doin' wrong. I have researched the sh*t out of this, and have not found much?"
