Engine radiator hose replacement

Had to replace my water pump and going to change the coolant also(5 yr old Final Charge) while I am at it. Then I realized I should also change the rad hoses. It is kind of like remodeling a house, one thing leads to another then another. Called Spartan and got a drawing which said the hoses were mostly cut to fit sleeves attached to tubing and to my surprise are silicone. Looked under the bus and sure enough they are blue silicone sleeves. Should I still replace if they are silicone? Bus has 72k miles. Thanks for the advice.

Bruce

Hi Tigerfan1,
I replaced mine when the coolant was replaced. I replaced all engine compartment hoses at the same time.

That is low mileage to be changing hoses. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
I have had three coaches ,still own one, all high mileage, 135000 to 245000 and only the 245000 ever had hoses changed. JMHO.
