When I was installing my hydraulic system I remember Duane saying he did not
recommend a gauge in the panel either, and for pretty much the same reason. It's
distracting, and if the system works, it works. I followed his advice and have
been quite happy with the results. In my case, only small adjustments to the
pressure switches were needed to make the gear function properly.

Good analogy. How many builders EVER check the SWR on their antennas?
