Be careful when you remove that plug. I got sprayed with oil TWICE removing that plug. Still haven't figured out how to relieve the pressure. Taking the fill plug out didn't do the trick. Still got sprayed.

I leave the fill plug in and just crack it so I can turn it by hand. Then I remove the drain plug and the oil drains slow since only a small amount of air is entering the oil reservoir. As the oil comes out and the flow rate drops I slowly unscrew the fill plug until finally I remove it and drain all the oil from the touch control.

I mean sprayed, as in under pressure. As soon as the plug got far enough out to allow oil to escape, it was coming out in all directions under high pressure.

It drained with no issue. I just cycled the Touch Control a bunch to purge air with the filler plug open, then removed drain plug. :)

Hi,
You don't need to cycle the Touch Control arms when you are going to drain the fluid, it is only after refilling it, after draining and changing the fluid.
The manual says run the engine a few seconds after draining the system, with the drain plug out, to remove the fluid from the tubes to the pump, but you don't cycle the arms then. :)

You should have the lift in the rear position when draining the oil.
