DP Belts & Hoses

I just had several things done to my HR Ambassador at Iron Horse RV in San Antonio. They did good work and I am pleased (so far). Question; I had them check my engine belts and hoses and they replaced both belts but said the hoses were good. My MH is a 2004 model and I have never had the hoses checked and I wonder, should they be changed as a matter of principle?

Hoses can out last belts. However, a hose that breaks on the road means sitting on the shoulder waiting for roadside assistance. Compared to the cost and inconvenience. Changing the hoses is a good idea. It not an expensive maintenance item. One less thing to worry about.

Good luck and Happy Trails!!

All the hoses on my 2004 are original. I don't see any signs or wear or aging (e.g. cracks), so I have no immediate plan to change any of them.
