Hydraulic birds nest

I haven't had my pdi yet but have asked the dealer to tend to this (see pic).

The wires and hydraulic hoses and valves look like a birds nest. They are I. The front utility compartment under the front room. The unit has hydraulic front landing gear. Not sure of the slides are also hydraulic or electric. It seems to me the factory could have made this look neater. Does anyone else's hydraulic lines look this way?

When I get my 30DS back I'll check it.
I don't recall it looking that jumbled.

You have hydraulic slides. I also don't recall mine being that messy, at least I've never made note of it ever being an issue if it is. I think the wires make it look messy, maybe just tie them up a bit.

That's what I asked the dealer to do, use some zip ties or something.

That assembler should be re-trained, reassigned or fired! Is that hydraulic valve "hanging" loose also?!! Definitly get them to re-route the hydraulic lines and mount the valve securely. If your slides are hydraulic, there may be a time when you may need to isolate one slide or another from opening or closing and you would need to turn a portion of that valve off. If you start twisting the valves' knobs, you can be stressing the lines and fittings.

Thanks rracer. Agree the assemble must have gone on break and forgot to finish the job. Yes the valve body is hanging free. I have asked dealer to sort it out ill sent a pic of the finished product
