Hydraulic Lines

We've been RVing with some friends in a 05 Country Coach. We started to pack up this morning and shortly after they fired up, we noticed that they had a major hydraulic leak. Their coach has the same hydraulic fan system that our Alpines have. After they shut down, we crawled under the coach and found that two hydraulic lines where crossed (one on top of the other) where they tied to the frame. They had rubbed on each other enough to put a hole in one line and the other was almost worn through. So I suggest we add a visual inspection of hydraulic lines now and then. Our lines are easy to see, the CC had a cover over all the lines. Being stuck in Dutch John, UT is no fun unless the fish are biting.

Good point! there are so many thing we have to check now and then that if we don't put it on our list...well, we end up with a leak.
