Well I just returned from a trip to Elkhart to get the hydraulic hoses replaced. ( Spent some time in the RV Hall of Fame while she was in the shop ). The shop had to replace all, every one, of the hydraulic hoses, to the tune of $1500. He showed me the old ones, and they were indeed rotting, with the jacket/covers coming off. He said that I was fortunate that one didn't break while the vehicle was in motion and spray hot fluid on the engine or exhaust....kaboom...
My RV/travel fund has taken a real hit, but you do what you gotta do.
