    Great video. Trying to learn a little more about these. Going to look at one this week. I am getting it tripping on High oil pressure overnight. Any ideas what would be causing that? The compressor is actually low on oil although sight glass is very dirty and cant see for sure. Separator float may be jammed i suspect. Thanks
