The defective hoses on my unit are stamped with "Eaton". The hoses I just received are from Lippert (and stamped with "Lippert"). These hoses were ordered by FR and shipped directly to my house.

I have read about the orange hose failures.
Do you know that I have had 2 hole failures in my 2012 378TS and they were on the (black) hoses leaving the pump to my bedroom slide. Failed at the crimped end at the pump but bleed between the outter and innder layers of the hose.
Now I had a blowout on my front right leveller. It blew at the crimped end at the leveller connection. (black line)

Then hoses checked and probably replaced. This is a brand new coach. I'm wondering if there is a problem with the Lippert pumps in general.
Had problems with hydraulic pump when we first bought the RV. We keep extra seals now, but so far, the replacement seal has held. As for the bulges and orange hoses, Orlando RV replaced all of them with custom cut hoses so that this will not occur again. No charge to us but it did take about two weeks to get everything done. Our RV is under a year old and we are planning a month long trip in September, and as one of the mechanics said, everything seems to be a "do over." We hope our do overs are done for a while.

Its just poor manufacturing an installers knew they had bad looking crimped hoses or awkward bends when they were doing it, i understand hoses came from somewhere else, but installers seen the awkward bends that would cause problems, i say SHAME on forest river an those people in asembly should be re-school with some pride in what there doing .... we like our 378 .. but some of these things should of never happened...

One would think F R or Lipsrt would do a recall for everyone who has issues. Not like they don't know who purchased one.
They shoul fix all. My hoses were rePlaced by FR per Mr Armstrong in the warranty dept. problem is the pump is next to go because fluid is leaking through the motor. $1300 to fix it at my pocket cost. Really sucks.

Exclamation

Neither of them will do a voluntary recall without being pressured to do so. It's so much cheaper to approve/deny warranty claims. The right way to deal with this situation is to file a complaint with the NHTSA. They will do the proper investigation and have the power to make things right. I've counted 24 unique forum members who have experienced the orange hose blistering defect. It's an obvious problem with possible safety implications. This forum makes up a very small subset of the Georgetown owners (best selling gas Class 'A' ). Imagine how many other folks out there have this hidden surprise....

Until folks file a complaint, nothing will be done...
