hydraulic lines

The hydraulic lines underneath the coach are slightly wet with fluid. These lines are in the rear. They were wiped clean and were wet the next morning.
It seems to be on 2 lines only. Can the hoses be porous?
Thanks
Tom

How old is your Georgetown?
No they are not suppose to be porous.
I would check the fitting closest to the wet hoses.
If they are tight I would look for small bubbles onthe surface of the hoses. What has happened inmany of our Georgetowns the fittings fail and allows fluid to enter between the outer layer and inner layer of the hose. The fluid is pressurized and travels along the hose and causes bubbles. They bubbles start leaking/sqirting fluid around. They will fail and need to be replaced before they do.

I checked the hoses and it seems as if the hose is dry on both sides
of the wet area. All the fittings at the pump are tight and dry.
One leak has caused oil staining on the outside of the storage compartment.
But the hose is dry but dirty there.
The other leak has gotten the other hoses a little slippery.
I'm going to watch and try to make it leak more if possible.
