Default More problems with my 04 sun voyager

Couple of things

Moved Moho today and noticed brake pedal going to floorboard. When I got out I saw brake fluid all over the driveway. I looked under and it is leaking from the cross member in the front. Didnít crawl under as I have rear jacked up fixing a flat. Anyone else had this problem? If so what line did you have to buy? Iím sure I can change it

Also I noticed I have 2 12v house batteries. They are 3 years old so Iím going to replace them. Anyone know if this is correct or should they be 6v?

I was having problems with living groom slide. Put it out about a month ago. Was plugged all this time. Slide came back in fine.

When I moved the camper I was putting the rear jacks and they just stopped. I plugged it back up and they then went down rest of way down. So Iím sure my batteries are going bad

Would appreciate any help on these things

Yes, I had a brake line start leaking on my '06 Sun Voyager. In my case it sprayed directly on the exhaust and made a lot of smoke. A shop near me was able to replace the brake line tubing with generic line. It ran down the cross member from the left to the front right brake. Cost was about $200 if I remember correctly.
I had 2-12v batts for the house, but I replace them with 2-6v golfcart batteries from Sams. That's worked rather well for me.
Also check the hydraulic oil reservoir. Maybe it's low.

Had it towed to shop today. They can fix the brake line. I got under but the dang thing is so low to the ground. I jacked it up but wasnít comfortable working under it. The brake line goes from right front across to drivers side and towards the rear

Hope it doesnít cost too much to fix. I see where some people say you canít get brake lines for these coaches any longer

Iím sure Ford has them and will charge arm and leg

This is the 4th Motorhome I have owned and by far the worst
It does have full body paint so it looks great on the outside

But just about everything that could go wrong has gone wrong with this camper

Gonna cost me 400. To get brakes fixed. I think Iím gonna sale it for whatever I can get for it. I know I will take a Huge loss but I just canít depend on this dang thing

Brakes are fixed.

Next problem. Now none of my 12v lights are working
Anyone have any idea which fuse controls them. Iím sure thatís what it is

Also anyone know how to access slide motor. Itís the big slide. Goes out fine but just tries to come in but wonít do it
