Hoof it on down to Texas and do it there.
Have NAPA or some shop like it make the hoses for you.

I did not do that, although I sure considered it. I was afraid it would leak enough pressure to let the jacks drift down while driving, a real bad thing. Just decided it wasn't worth the worry. Will post the cost Monday when it's done. The hydraulic shop I am taking it to has done some for DesMoines RV, so they know what needs done. Thanks to all who posted ideas.

Newellri thanks for getting back to us
BTY how many hoses were changed
for "300 bucks"? was it just one?

A RV repair shop in my town wanted over $1000.00 to replace
all of mine.

That was for one hose. The labor was three hours to remove and replace and purge the air from the system. It was two quart low on fluid.

Lippert covered all my hoses and FR covered the labor which was around $1000.

Does anyone know?
If you use the allen wrench on a particular valve prior to opening the hose on that valve reduce the amount of pressure and loss of ATF fluid?

Just thought to ask if I ever need to do this.

Doubt it, the valve connects to pump output manifold, hose will still have high pressure. Best I can tell.

So is there a way to bleed the psi off before removing the hose? I have three of the red hoses on my 2010 373 that I'm going to change out this spring.

To my knowledge, if jacks are retracted and leveling system is turned off, there shouldn't be any pressure in the system, only will have pressure if the hydraulic pump motor is running......
