Hydraulic protective housing

I was recently looking at my hydraulic leveling lines, and noticed all of the orange lines had blisters on them. I'm in the process of trying to deal with that now. Additionally I was looking at the housing where all of the lines meet. It seems to me that there should be some sort of protective cover for this area. It's positioned fairly close behind one of the tires. My fear is that something will be kicked up from the tires/road and damage the unit. Critical connections along with some fuses are all exposed. Should there have been a protective housing installed during manufacturing? Am I worrying about nothing? Any insightful comments would be much appreciated. Thanks. BTW this is a new Georgetown purchased in May.

I had the same issue with the orange return lines blistering and also leaking. Forest River covered the cost of replacing all of the orange return lines with a different type of line (black) even though I was out of the warranty period.
