Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

Oh ok, so did you need my assistance any more ?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
could changing the hoses caused this to happen
Expert:  Lou P. master tech replied 11 months ago.

No It could not. The hoses are just plastic and don't affect anything. I think that the battery is just weak and needs to be changed and tested.
