need help with HWH hoses

I was working under my RV today and saw that some of the hydraulic lines are cracking and are showing signs of leakage.
Can anyone recommend a shop in the SoCali area that can make and install hoses?
or should I go through HWC.

Getting hoses made will be the easy part. Any hydraulic parts place that makes hoses can make them if you tell how long you want them and the size and type of the connectors they need. An RV repair facility should be able to do the work. You may find a chassis repair shop that will do the work for you. It is not hard, just time consuming to pull out the lines and run new ones. There are tags on the lines near the ends that have a part number beginning with "AP". Direct replacement hoses can be ordered from HWH by this number and time of removal could be saved and just add the new ones. Good luck and keep us posted.

I originally wanted to have someone else do this repair for me because the rear hoses that were leaking run inside the frame rails and are difficult to access at the sides of the fuel tank. Also the AP numbers were completely gone at the control side of the hoses. I first started to measure the lines, but then I found the AP #'s somewhat visible at the rear jacks. I removed the white tags and cleaned them so I was able to order the OE hoses from HWH.
I used a 1/4" pipe nipple to thread the front of the new hose to the rear of the old hose and was able to pull the new hose all the way up to the front. I had to cut off about 40 zip ties to get the lines out, then installed 48 new ones.
What a relief to have my jacks working again and only cost me about $160.

Glad to hear you have your jacks back down and working.
Thanks for the update.
