Changing out hydraulic hoses on 2007 Gulf Stream

Today I started the replacement of my leveler jack and main slide hydraulic hoses. Last fall I noticed a couple oil drops under my motorhome and after investigating, I found all the hoses had blisters on them from the inner liner failing. Some of the blisters were quite large, meaning they were probably going to burst sooner than later. I removed the eight hoses going to the four levelers and the two for my main slide. This was not an easy chore only because the four on the rear levelers were difficult to pull out due to the way they were routed around the gas tank along the frame rail and tie wrapped. Now I'll have a local shop build the new hoses and then I'll install them. I'll also drain the reservoir of existing fluid and refill with new fluid. I highly recommend anyone with an older coach check their hoses so they don't have an unfortunate incident of a failure at a most inopportune time. My coach is a 2007 unit and was over due for this work. Also, it was a very dirty job so be forewarned or pay someone else to do it! I attached some pictures to show the large blister.

I had to do the exact same thing to my 2006 goofstream.
It was a royal pain in the *****.

Good luck
Best thing I did was get rid of that POS.

Sorry to hear that you had such a bad time with yours, my parents had it before me for 13 years and didn't have any major issues with it. They had some quality issues with trim coming off and a vanity mirror falling off but that was after many miles traveled on our countries rough roads that beat a motorhome up pretty bad. I look at the hose replacement as a normal wearable part after so many years. I'll keep working at maintaining it because it has a great layout and chassis.
