You miss the point Phil.  The vacuum/pressure pump has been available for 
some time, and actually it's *less* wiring, and a single vacuum/prress line 
to the actuator, not more.  If you take the time to pull apart the vacuum 
controller and look inside, the vacuum/pressure pump is simple in comparison. 
 After wiring 2 controllers and installing them, I wish I had gone the v/p 
route myself.
