Sadly, the only way you can really test the hoses is to blow about .5 pounds of freon in it and some dye. Then make the compressor cycle until it runs the freon out, then check the hoses and other connections for the leak. half a pound is usually enough to make the compressor kick on. It will probably take a bit for the freon to leak out as well. This is why the dye is so handy for the job.
