I asked this on the Winnebago forum, so I'll try here too:Question for any of you who have replaced a line or 2. What about any air that's in the line? Does it self purge after a few cycles or does the system have to be bled?

Tim, I have the RVA hydralic leveling jacks by HWH on my TREK and they are self bleeding. Here is a Link to their website: http://www.hwhcorp.com/

If you look on their home page under "SYSTEM INFORMATION" it gives you all the info on their systems.

There is another company called BIGFOOT LEVELERS, but I do not know what kind you have on your coach, so you may have to find out who made yours in order to get the correct info.

Good luck - Glenn

Thanks, I have the HWH, not sure if the leaking hose goes to a levelers or a slide out. Its near the right rear wheel....waiting for the weather to break.

Before you replace the line try tightening the connection. In addition to that it is important to know where the line goes when replacing the line as usually there are a pair of cylinders for moving something. If one has air in it and the other doesn't the item will move out of alignment.

I suggest that you contact HWH for the correct bleeding procedure for the line you may need to replace to avoid damage.

Hi..new to this site and a new 2002 Adventurer owner. After buying we discovered the leaking line behind the right rear wheel. Took it to 3T's here locally and found out that HWH has a recall. All our lines (34' of hose) were replaced under recall.
Good luck.

I had mine replaced at LazyDays in Sefner Florida and it ended up being the bedroom slide hoses. They botched it up so badly trying to get the air out of the system that they broke both lower corners of the main sidewall.

The kept the coach for over a month and it still leaks.

I have never dealt with such a bunch of incomp....

Sadly they claimed they had their best man on the job too.
