Power Pole hydraulic lines failing
I was wondering if anyone else is having issues. I had two fail in the past two weeks. It was the same line so I feel it was a manufacturing problem with the line itself. Looks as if an air bubble was in the wall of the hose and it expanded with heat. Then the pressure helped blow it out.
First time I had enough hose left to cut and reattach adn didnt lose that much fluid.....this time not enough hose left and I lost much more fluid.
I am in Michigan and I know it has been hot here by our standards. But its NOTHING compared to where other are!
Also I know of this happening on a couple of different boats around here. One was bubbled like mine and another had cracks going along the hose.
I will try to post pics from my phone when I can. I will be calling JL Marine this morning.
