Hello! Let's see if we can work together and come to a satisfactory conclusion!

How was operation before replacing the hoses? Trash in system can always cause valve to stick. But you seem to have two separate problems. Steering is not related to the outriggers in any way!

I link below # 3 is a priority valve that that has to shuttle for the steering to work. One of these valves may be stuck.
