Waiting for warmer weather to crawl under, it is 03 deg today in IA. My only worry in doing it my self is getting the old out and the new one routed in. I ask dealer if factory won't replace it to give the hose information to have a new one made beforehand. Again thanks for the help.

Glad. To help, but I winter in Pharr TX. It looks simple just remember to bleed air out of new line before tightening. I think we should put the additive for popping if you are having that problem. I have had my hand on a jack when it popped, it is in the jack! Good luck.

Just for info, they are self bleeding, just reverse the affected control a few times and all air will driven into the tank.
No mess.

Do you mean , after I install the new hose operate or cycle the legs and sliders a few times and that gets rid if the air in the line?
I guess I'll mosey on down to NAPA next week with my old hoses and have some new ones made-up.
Thanks for the tip......more to come.

Yes each piston stroke drives or returns. Since the return leads back to the tank, the air goes with it. When you reverse stroke the "other side" is returning to the tank.

On my 2011, before purchase I had the dealer replace the orange lines on my rig thanks to this forum. However, they did not replace all of them initially after I was told they did. I then had them replace the remaining lines immediately using an outside mobile truck repair service. The lines they installed are 10x better than the crap that Forest River installed. New York State D.O.T. certified lines. OP, watch out for "dealer speak" when they say the delay is waiting to hear from the factory. More than likely that is a stall from doing anything. Press them to have someone come in and do the work if they are too busy. If you are in De Moines Iowa, I am guessing you are dealing with De Moines RV, one of four as part of RVONE. My purchase was from Buffalo RV, same company. Remember to tell them of the vast safety issue at hand should a hydraulic jack or slide deploy while going down the highway at 65mph and who would be responsible? Good Luck.

Well I gave up on DesMoines RV. They said would provide the part if I would wait three weeks. If they had said that three weeks ago ok, but now one week from leaving no way. Made an appointment to have it done at a hydraulic shop Monday. I first contacted them mon. After Thanksgiving. This is not my first problem with the repair shop!
