Zodiac fast roller deflation
I've sussed inflation with my active-v boat, but its time to put it back in its bag. I've already had one attempt, and failed, so I have re inflated and will try again.
I read on one post not to evacuate all air as it makes the tubes stick together and make it hard to fold. The instructions also say, prior to folding, replace the valve dust caps - this I assume will stop further air escaping when folding.
When I tried to fold last time, I didn't let enough air out, and when I folded, I ended up enough air in the cones to prevent them from being folded. I did pump air out of the tubes, but not to point of vacuum. I did have problem pumping air out of the active floor/keel. It's a different valve which needed the inflation ring to be unscrewed meaning that the connector didn't fit the outer ring.
When deflating, is it safe to use my Bravo BST electric pump?
I think its just a matter of judging how much air to pump out before refitting the valve caps and starting the roll. Any tips on how to judge this is appreciated.
