ruptured hydraulic line

Any help would be most appreciated. I am stuck in Shreveport, LA with a ruptured hydraulic line. All slides & all jacks, push any button and fluid leaks. I have a 2005 Winnebago Journey 39F. The leak is mid coach about 15 feet back from front axle on driver side.The line is in a fabric covered bundle of hoses that runs down the inside of the frame. The leak is between the frame and water tank and can't be reached. I have checked the entire area and no one will touch the problem including Camping World. I called HWH yesterday they say it will be about 10 days to speak to a tech. Any advise would be most helpful and much appreciated. ------------ Thanks Len

I'd recommend giving Paul Maddox (azpete) a call. He works for HWH, is active on these forums, and seems always happy to help out fellow RVers. His number (as he has posted before) is 602 549 3638 or [email protected] .

1. Another vote for azpete.

2. Here's a link to a page that will have the HWH hose and electrical diagrams specific to your rig. It may help you isolate which hose is leaking.

If you can ID the hose, you (or a service tech) can most likely be able to get to its fittings at either end in order to remove and replace it. Worst case is you leave the old, disconnected hose in place and run the new hose via a fish tape or alternative routing. In replacing the hose, it's important that the replacement be exactly the same as the old one in terms of all specs, including length. There are white tags at either end of the hose with the HWH part number. The best way to do this is to order a replacement from HWH. Often the hose will seem too long but this is by design in order to balance fluid flows between hoses.

Some posters have had hoses fabricated locally but IMHO it's not worth the savings unless you're under extreme time pressure. If an HWH hose costs $50 w/shipping your savings can't be too significant in the overall scheme of things.

If you're not up to DIY, start contacting local truck or hydraulic shops.
