So I was using my backhoe and noticed that it would spray as I would use the bucket curl. Looking at it I'm thinking to myself "that can't be right" and kept operating it (without the curl) just thinking something was wrong. I checked for other leaks and there was none. So about a minute later it hits me that the hose appeared to be loose. So I got a wrench and tightened it back up. No more leak.
Next day (today) I checked the fluid level and it appears to be full. I checked the level covers all of the "X's" on the dip stick. So my question... should I bother filling it since it appears full? Anything else I should check to be on the safe side?
