    Where in the hose are they failing? Near fitting? Random spots or all in same general spot?

    They fail from regular plowing or when you strike a object? Causing extra pressure.

    Can I lower the cross over relief valve? I have done this on a Meyers but never had to on a Western
    Thank for all the help

    Take it back before you touch anything.

    I don't think there is a adjustment. You can check mechanics guide on western website. It's always the same side that blows?

    There is an adjustment for crossover relief. As I recall you screw to the bottom and then back off 1 1/4 turns on each of two screws.
    But take it back and let the dealer do it.
