Replacing Coolant/Heater hoses for Hurricane system

Could I ask how much that work cost you to replace the 5/8" coolant lines? My 2000 Country Coach probably needs to have the same thing done and when I traced the runs for the lines from the back of the engine compartment to the front of the house it looked like a nightmare to replace the lines between the pumps. In fact the local Cat dealer suggested disconnecting and leaving the existing coolant hoses in place and installing new coolant hoses near by the existing runs--a process that still looks to be difficult and time consuming (spelled expensive) to do.

I had Caterpillar replace the coolant lines in the engine compartment before we went on our way from here. That ran close to $3,000. Country Coach replaced the rest of the coolant hoses. They left the existing hoses in place--just cut them where they needed to--and ran new hoses parallel to the old ones through the channel between the main chassis beams. The work ran about $4000.

I had to replace all Hdro-Hot and dash heater hoses in our Essex because the hoses were low quality. I used marine grade replacement hose and it took me 40 hours plus with hose, hose wrap and gate valves 900$. A BIG PROJECT you only want to do once.

My hoses are pushing 14 years old and so far no problems. They are silicone and should not need replacement any time soon. One of the reasons it that the Hurricane system is low pressure. If you check the pressure cap, you will see that it is, or should be, 7PSI.

I am going to wait until one leaks, then worry about it.

You might want to talk to Kevin Waite or Bob Vinson before you go replacing good hoses.

$4K is unreasonable for hose replacement

I'm with you Don. I'm going to wait until I have an actual problem before I deal with the nightmare of replacing the hoses.
