Yes, if you haven't pumped most of your fluid on the ground.
I blew the same one about 4 yrs ago. There is a design problem that causes that particular line to blow. When the slide is closed there is about 3000 psi in the line that holds the slide in while traveling. Then during and after a long hot drive, the engine/tranny heat soaks in and increases the pressure to beyond the 5000 psi ratings of the hose and connectors. AZpete told me his blew and he measured something like 7000 psi.
HWH is notoriously slow, maybe weeks to get back to you. Call Stuarts Service in Elkhart 800 826-6267 for fast response. They know everything about HWH systems, stock and sell all parts at very reasonable prices. Will also help you trouble shoot over the phone. Ask for the steel retrofit kit that won't have the heat soak problem. I would of replaced it myself but the slide has to be removed to access the cylinder connection inside the square support beam. The total length of steel & rubber has to be the same so the two cylinders stay in sync.
Good luck,
Bill

Thanks. Did you repair yours yourself? And so you have any tips?

No, pulling the big slide out all the way takes a trained tech and fork lift or some other equipment. Not sure I've read anybody on this forum doing it themselves. There might be one thread from years ago and maybe that guy can post here.

So I was able to take the inspection cover off where the hoses hook to the cylinder for the front slide and the line blew before the 90. I basically have to replace just the hose.

Dang, I didn't have that luck. I was getting leakage for years before it blew out.
I was thinking what if there was a way to put a pressure relief valve on that line and dump excess pressure fluid back in the reservoir???

That is another dumb HWH/Winnie design. Mine blew, and when we investigated, it was a 90 off the cylinder and then bent the line around a sharp corner where it rubbed. A steel u-tube off the top of the cylinders would have been so much smarter. And a design that let you access the cylinder top hose fitting while I'm wishing.
