Orange hydraulic hoses

Notice a leak under the motorhome. Crawled under and saw fluid on the hoses. The orange hoses are developing bubbles. Coach is 2012 350ts. From reading some posts, Lippert hoses are junk. Does anyone know if Forest River upgraded the orange hoses?

There have been a few threads about this problem, the fix has been to go to a auto repair shop or a hydraulic shop with the hoses and have them make new ones.

If you wait for a dealer or Lippert the wait will be long and frustrating.

A Georgetown two units from mine had every orange hose replaced at this years rally. Lippert spent most of the day doing the repairs. His houses were also starting to bubble.

Did they replace them with the same type or a better kind of hose?

Just asking.....

Was following the run of the Orange hoses. All wrapped in Ty-wrap, go through cavity under gas tank. The third hose is hidden under the small bedroom slide which appears difficult to get too$$$. They have no real mechanics at dealer where I purchased the coach.
Has anyone had work done at Good Sams. Update tomorrow when I speak to Forest River.

1 replaced one myself. Left rear jack. 2 hour job, including a trip to the local hydraulic shop.

Don't know if they were different or the same, but they were orange.

Heard back from Forest River rep today. Explained my situation and he was a nice gentleman. He is going to send me 3 orange hoses, but no labor cost. He said," They were an upgrade from the previous hoses. ". I am ok with the no labor. I rather install them myself.
