Exclamation LCI leveling system blows hose.

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

You don't have to drive home for warranty repairs. Phone the company directly, explain your dilemma, and ask for the name and address of the closest warranty repair facility.
I did that for a repair on our 3 month old 5er. The company referred me to a dealer in Davenport IA for warranty repairs. The repairs were completed in one day, we spent the night in a Scott county CG (West Lake Park) about 1/4 mile away and continued our trip the next morning.

Another option is to pay for having new hydraulic hoses made up ( these shops are in every mid-size city) and submit a claim to the manufacturer for reimbursement.
You can fasten the jacks up and drive home, then you lose leveling capability. Does the same hydraulic pump supply slideout movement?
If you want the service manual for your hydraulic leveling system, go to Lippert Components Inc.

Their hoses seem to be of a lower quality than most all the other leveling systems in our industry. You may even get authorization to have a local hydraulic shop make a new hose the length you need.

Slide is electric . Going to call dealer in rapid city. Not much here in SD!
Got no help from lci on phone. They didn't seem to know if jacks would drop. Called my dealer in MN. He said they need pressure to go down .
