I’m sorry, I gave too much information about the compressor issue. What I need to know, if anyone had to replace their engine ac hoses and how expensive will it be? Thanks everyone for taking the time to help out


1. IF you have a Diesel Pusher, then replacing the dual 40 foot AC lines will be very expensive. The Frame AC lines are installed on a Diesel by the Chassis maker and are extremely hard to get too. Unless those lines have a hole, you do not replace them
2. The Lines at the engine and up front at the Evap assbly are short, less than 10 foot each.
3. IF the Compressor has failed internally, then a complete flush is required
4. New Compressors require a new Dryer to keep the compressor warranty in effect.
5. A failed internal compressor may also clog up the expansion valve, so it may require replacement. Doug

Yes the hoses are expensive. They were installed by the motorhome builder and OEM parts are always over priced. Your other option would be to take them off and have a local shop make them. Since these are high pressure hoses it will still be expensive.
If I remember correctly a friend replaced just 1 hose on his F-53 chassis and REV sold it to him. It was over $200.00 2 years ago.

I'm curious what chassis and engine we are talking about. Seems to me the cost could vary quite a bit.

Nothing you can do now but get it fixed. Shop will evaluate the cost and soon you will be back on the road for summer. Don't blink, just pay and move on to having fun.
