I notice the orange hydraulic hoses on our 2011 378 are dripping all along their length. These are Lippert hoses which replaced the originals in 2012. Originals bubbled, these have not. Not sure whether this problem is likely to get a lot worse or not. Does not seem to be a leaking fitting. Overall, not happy. This unit seems to be continual problem child.

When I receive the new hoses, will see what grade they are. I am sure many Georgetowns are leaking and owners are not aware.

The hoses came in yesterday. Rated at 3000psig. I believe that is an upgrade from the originals. They are cut to length with new fittings. Nice job FR. Now the fun begins.

Best advice is take your time purging the system. It is best done stroking slides and jacks both directions. Trick is to baby the pump motor with lots of rest time. Do not let it get hot and trip out! It may be too late. Located right under the steps, easy to monitor. Also watch oil level during puurge.
