Hello and We are glad to have you join us here and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Not being there it is difficult to advise you on how to do the job but there will be some pressure on the hydraulic line. Once the pressure has been relieved, remove and replace hose. There is probably what is called a synchronizing cylinder and there will be no need to try and sync the two cylinders on the slide out. Run it out and hold it a few extra seconds and run it in and do the same will purge the air and it will eventually make it back to the reservoir and if you loose much fluid retract all slideouts and leveling jacks and top of the reservoir with ATF Dextron III.

Depends on the type of slide, just replaced a line on my Monaco. If it has an equalizer cylinder you do have to sync them, mine is an HWH system, and they have the manual on line in their support section on how to do it. It wasn't difficult but did take me a few hours. Good Luck!
