Shane you nailed it. I removed the hatch and looked around and saw some wet areas. I cranked the motor and there is a 1/8th inch hole in one of the hoses spraying a constant stream. Now I just need to try to figure out what that hose runs too. Looking from the top side its the lower hose on the left. I'm gonna look through some posts to see what I can find.


Thanks again for all the help guys.

I can help you there too... The smaller hose goes forward to the power steering pump. It is spliced inside the frame rail just forward of the pump location. I seem to recall that it's solid copper the rest of the way to the front of the coach. The challenge is separating from the other stuff jammed inside the frame rail and then getting it loose at the splice. It's a really tight spot for a "healthy eater" to reach. You need a half-starved, lanky 14 year-old for that job!

Can you give me an approximate location where the power steering pump is so I can possibly attempt to find that splice. Is it between the engine and the axles, or would it be in front of the axles. Is it something that removing the wheels would make easier or is it just flat out going to be tight. I'm not a healthy eater so I know I'm not fitting in there.

The power steering pump and hydraulic pump are the same things. The splice is within 2-3' of the pump on the front of the engine.

Momma Cass was a "Healthy Eater" LOL....

If it’s leaking that much, I would fix it where it sits. Too big a leak to risk driving even a few miles Pressure can spit out a lot of fluid quickly and you could end up without adequate steering or cooling. Shortly thereafter, you will be buying and replacing the hydraulic pump and maybe the fan motor. And then the Engine if things get really ugly.

Hire a mobile mechanic or get a friend or someone to help if you can’t fix it yourself.

It’s going to be a dirty job but you will save a ton of money if you can fix it yourself or at least without taking it into a Repair shop
Good Luck.

Max.

Brian, If that leak were on a Porsche, they would refer to it as a "high performance, undercarriage corrosion control system". No rust for you!!!
