Power Gear Hydraulic Hose Replacement

Hi all,
I have 06 Fleetwood Revolution LE and took it to Quinn for the routine maintenance. The service tech found multiple bubbling on the hydraulic lines of Power Gear Leveling jack.
The tech recommended replacing all the hoses and I will find out tomorrow how much is going to be.
Can it be DIY?
Can I take to local truck shops or hydraulic shops to do the work?
One fellow Revolution owner spent $1700 to replace all 8 hoses, and is it reasonable?
I am going to Grand Canyon next week and want to get this fixed soon.

Thanks advance for your reply.

A local hydraulic shop can make the hoses. You may have a repair shop that will do the job and depending on how the hoses were run; it may be less costly to leave some in place and just run new ones. $1700 for 8 lines installed is not unreasonable.

I had a 34' hose replaced at a hydraulic shop last year; it cost around $250 including labor.

You would be surprised how much hose can be replaced by coupling the fitting of the new hose to the old hose and then pulling and pushing st the same time. Depending on grommets and clamps you may have to use a short piece of threaded rod rather than an actual fitting.

it can be diy if you have enough patience. it takes from 1/2 hour to 4 hours to replace one hose. they can be bought locally. furnish the maker with the length and size of the hose. be sure to tell him that the pressure rating had to be between 2000 and 6000 lbs. that makes a difference on the quality and price of the hose.
ask about the warranty. mfg often supply as one year warranty on the part.
this is important, especially if the maker uses common soft hydraulic hose. its most often rated at 1200 lbs. it works fine on tractors, but not on rv hydraulic jacks.
this applies to all rv leveling systems.

going along with what azpete mentioned, you should tell you hose maker what fittings are on the hoses. My hoses were rated at SAE 100R17, 3/8" hose with 3/8" JIC female crimped fittings. Probably your best bet is to take the your hoses to the hyd. shop so they can determine the correct hose. Most hyd. hoses probably have the JIC fittings crimped on them. Sometimes these hoses can be quite a problem to remove, I had one that I thought I was going to have to leave in place but I finally got it cut up into several smaller pieces to remove it. Certainly cheaper if you do it yourself, not necessarily easier but cheaper! I replaced my 3 hoses in 2014 for just under $400.00. I removed and replaced them myself. Good luck
