Exclamation ACE jack problem!

My 1 month old lci system just blew a hose!!
I was driving and suddenly the jacks down alarm came on. Pulled over and jacks were up but fluid running out of blown off hose.( right at fitting).
This system has no springs to hold them up.

Will they stay up? I have a 700 mile drive home. I grabbed some bungie cords at hardware store.

Anyone else have this happen. Also the other rear hose has an anurisum that hasn't burst yet

That stinks. This is the system your local dealer installed for you if I remember correctly. You will be raising *ell with them when you get back. Hopefully the bungees will work. I keep a few of them in my storage compartment just in case. I've noticed mine seem to seep down a couple of inches after about a week. Don't know if that is normal but I haven't seen any leaks. Good luck!

There are no holes in the pads , which makes it challenging to strap em up. Spoke with my dealer this am, he said they need power to go down. ...
I'll keep em strapped just for piece of mind. I also disconnected pressure switch to keep alarm and power to system off

Thats a major bummer. Hope the dealer will make it right for you. Were these jacks installed at the factory or aftermarket?
