That all made sense, but the next thing he said was that the hose had apparently been modified by Thor. I checked with Thor through my RV dealership and they said that was definitely a Ford part. I don't understand this grey area. My plan is to go to a different Ford service center and try again.
Has anyone ran into an issue like this before?
For some, not all, Ford dealers, that seems to be a standard answer. "It's their fault". Others have fixed Thor issues and did not charge me. Power steering is obviously part of the chassis and there should be no reason that Thor should have touched it. But... you never know!
