well Jim, it would seem you were right. I took the VC off and cleaned it and the major leak seems to be gone. Thank you for your wise input :)

from where i am taking the photo there is a stone wall about 2.5' high between the 2 levels of the parking lot. you can see the slight hill between the blue tractor and the trailer is where i pull up to and then back up... been doing it for 25 years without incident.....
