Default Hydrolic Hose Replacement

One of the few original hoses that are left on the coach is the end to end hydrolic hose. I am going to Wander Works in April for some work and they suggested to replace the hose in the engine bay and in the wheel wells as they are the spots of potential failure. That puts a lot of fitting in the hose and I would think maybe a lot of problems. I talked to Randy, he hates the idea BTW, and I can't blame him. He said " haven't you read the piese I put in here about changing the hose out?" Can someone point me to Randy's blog. I need an idea or a link to even find it. I think if I am gonna pay to have it done I ought to have it pulled completely rather than pieced in. What are your thoughts?

Not done one on a BMC, but I did one on my buddies PT. I ran the hose where I could, left the old hose in place, cut it off and abandoned. The hose on a PT goes over the top of the fuel tank and it’s strapped all over so not a chance of getting it out.

Here is my video on replacing it on a PT:

I would never patch a hose or run recap tires.
Well,i might do both as a "get home measure"
Do it right or don't do it.

Several have had ps hose failures in the last few years. Some patched some complete replacement. It certainly make me want to be prepared. I don't think anyone has found a easy way to pull a new hose from pump to ps sector. If they have, I want to know too.

Jeff is right. Won’t get it out without disassembling the coach. Mike

theres no reason to take it out,and you guys should pay attention,its not a terrible job at all,we have done5-6 at my place and we do them in less than a days time,which includes starting work at 10am,going to get parts and then having lunch and then putting the hose in.
Of course people call me about how to do it and then they argue about doing it the way we do it,***?

I always thought but never confirmed, that my former BMC hoses were inside the driver side frame rails channel with a sheet metal cover on it. Remove covers and you’ve gained quite a bit of access. But, I might be wrong, because I never removed them to see. They might be rectangular tubing with access holes cut in them too. Good luck
