Looks like our 2011 378 has been bitten by the bulging orange hose bug. I've been checking periodically since I first heard of this problem and everything has looked fine up until now. We just returned from Florida and I was checking the batteries when I nopticed the bulges now showing. The orange lines are marked Eaton Synflex. Have call in to the dealer.

Mine didnt show any problems for 2+ years. Eaton Synflex was the brand. The replacements are branded by the slide/jack manufactuer "Lippert"

It looks like that was damaged when they crimped the fitting on

Just inspected all of my orange hoses and thankfully, no noticeably bulges on my 2010 330ts.

Unhappy Hydraulic hoses on 2011 Georgetown

Bought out RV in August 2011, orange hoses all had to be replaced because of bulging and leakage. While Forest River made good on replacement , we have been without our RV for two months and still waiting to get it back. Frustrating for first time RV buyer, and very glad we were not on the road when the problem was found. Approvals for warrantee work take way too long. You may want to look under your unit before you take any long trips. Work being done at Orlando RV and it is really a major repair job. Also had to have panel seal on bedroom slide out repaired because of stripped screws when installed, and repair to furnace, it was never secured properly to RV compartment. Black hoses are fine. Understand now there is a Ford engine recall we will need to deal with.

Taken two trips and less than 3000 miles of use, mileage at around 8.2 mpg
