I just wanted to provide some helpful info I learned for future users like me who may search the forum for answers:
1. The appropriate coolant is RV/marine coolant with a propylene glycol base. Super Tech brand (color pink - sold at Walmart $4) and Splash brand (color pink - sold at Jax $5) are both appropriate options. Confirmed with Axiom.
2. When flushing the coolant system, you will need to alternate the run/flush toggle multiple times to (a) draw coolant through the system and (b) flush the reservoir. You fill the reservoir between these two steps. Again, you're doing this multiple times as needed to cycle the entire system. Confirmed with Axiom. This was not clear to me in the manual, so hopefully it's helpful to others.
3. It is 100% normal and expected to have a little air in the system/lines. Not a concern. Confirmed with Axiom. I have read some posts where users go to extreme lengths to rid the system of air (including multiple users who are removing their spindle, and turning it sideways while holding it below the reservoir???). Even if you successfully rid your system of the small amount of air bubbles, you're going to need to do it again the next time you flush your system. And you're likely to cause more harm than good by doing this (e.g., tram issues). Again, there is no need to do this, so rest easy.
