I have a 2011 378TS and several of the orange hoses are blistered and one is leaking. About half of the hoses are orange and the other half are black. Back to the dealer again!!

Happy Trails, Forrest

Talked to the dealer today, made an appointment for next week. He is going to try and get FR to authorize replacing them with hoses made locally for the dealer. If so, they will be better quality than the OM.

Dealer said FR refuses to authorize local replacement hoses and insists on sending replacement (orange) hoses from factory. Just hope we get them all replaced before warranty expires in Feb 2012.

My brother just bought a used 373 with bulging orange hoses. I had told him about the bulging hoses because of this thread. He hasn't actually "received" the unit from the dealer (yet), but the dealer is replacing his hoses.
He should pick it up this weekend.

My dealer and FR have talked, and they are replacing all of the orange lines (8) with new orange lines. According to FR these are higher quality lines and should not experience the blistering problemss the old ones did. We shall see.

We have a 2010 379 that is out of warranty. I just checked and we too have blistered orange hose throughout the coach. I will contact FR but I am not hopeful that they will warranty. Just curious, has anyone gotten an estimate of total cost to replace the 8 orange hoses?

Thanks for the help and for the information in this thread. This is a great forum!!!

I just had suspension air bags installed yesterday on my 2011 378ts and installer noticed the blistering on my orange hoses. My unit is under warranty but the garage told me it's an $1,100 job to replace all the orange hoses if you have to pay for it.
