    If it is putting a big load on the trucks engine getting the second stage to go out while empty, there is something very wrong. I am not familiar with how the two stage cylinders work, especially ones that are capable of using pressure to retract the cylinder. I would check pressures i guess to see if its a restriction in the valveing. Again i know nothing about how those particular trailers are plumbed. On regular multistage cylinders, if you large section retracts before the small one, it usually means the cylinder is bent.
