Has anyone noticed this issue with their HB:

When I leave my hatch open for a bit (more than 5-10 min), it is very hard to close…almost like the dampening valve in the struts is v. high? Not a big thing, just curious.

Mines the same. Now there both leaking
I've noticed that.
I always assumed it was the outside of the rod drying out (lack of lubrication) when it's open for an extended period of time. I figured it was the dry rod rubbing against the dry o-ring.

It fixes itself after it cycles back closed. Maybe it's the internal valving.
I never cared enough to investigate further. [dunno][wrenchin]

Not a concern, was just curious. You are correct; it seems to re-set itself once you close it. Weird.
