Question Hydraulic hose leak on rear slide 2002 Horizon 39'

On My 2002 Itasca Horizon 39 foot rear Slide has both hoses on the cylinder leaking. Both hoses have many small bubbles forming between inner and outer layers of the hose. Understand there was a Recall for this in 2006!
My question is how do you get to the hose fitting on each end of the cylinder to replace the hose????? Winnebago in it's infinite wisdom made it almost impossible to get at the hose connectors with their slide design. it appears as if you have to remove the rear slide.
Has anyone had to replace these hose and if how was it done????

there was no recall. hwh repaired coaches with this problem under a two year good will repair for first time owners. is this slide the wardrobe slide?or the bed slide? in either case you do not have to remove the slide. for the bed slide, the cylinder connection is under the bed.
for the wardrobe slide, you have to go in under the bed to get to the cylinder connection. the other end is above the radiator. it can be reached underneath.
please call me at 602-549-3638. i can help. i have changed these hoses before.
