  1. manholt Thanks, I'll stick a few bottles of Dawn in the basement until i get it all resolved. docj, WILDBILL, If replaced, planning to stay with a 3,000 psi rated product Thanks for the help Robert
  2. WILDBILL & RSBILLEDWARDS. I am appreciative of the feedback, advice and "discounthydraulichose" website. Haven't open the wallet yet ... weighing the options, and will still get a quote from Carolina Truck Care. Thanks Robert
  3. WILDBILL, The braiding beneath the outer cover looks white (synthetic fiber - nylon?) and not metallic. The cracks are everywhere, at the earlier pictures - valve assembly, and near the cylinders (attached). I don't want to waste money, but just trying to be proactive. Robert
  4. manholt, I do not have any leaks at the fittings or along any of the hoses at this time. I showed the pictures to a hydraulic supply shop, in preparation for personally taking on the job, and were told the cracks were due to "age" ... and less expensive hose being used. My concern is the eventual or potential hose/system leak .... and with my luck, 11pm on a Friday night. Robert
  5. cracks in outer jacket (hose on right side)

  7. Gentlemen, Thanks for the rapid replies. It is a Lippert System on this 2009 coach, and assumed Lippert supplied jacks. I am the 2nd or 3rd owner of this coach, and can't confirm. As to working on it, yes, in fact thought about turning it into a DIY project. However, if I replace one line I plan to replace all ... some 10 or so hose assemblies, estimated 170' of hose, and untold fittings. An additional concern would be the hydraulic spill on the driveway, besides just my body access under the coach with the leveling jacks retracted. Since starting this thread, I have reached out a company called Carolina Truck Care and have scheduled a 12/2 appointment for estimate, etc... I will continue to follow this thread should additional advice or local shop reviews be posted Thank you again Robert
  8. Live in the Spartanburg, SC area. In need of having the hydraulic leveling jack hoses replaced on a 2009 Damon Tuscany Class A. No leaks yet, but old hoses are showing cracks in outer jacket. Anyone have experience with something similar in my area, and preferably advice on a good service center or other. Thanks
