On quite a few of the s/c skis.
Just pull the hose off and clean the inside of the hose and the surface of where it attaches to with brake cleaner and dry them.
Make sure to use a HEAVY DUTY HOSE CLAMP. A clamp that you can tighten with a rachet. Don't tighten the clamp with a screw driver it just isn't enough pressure to hold.
Socket and rachet to get the best torque.

use a t-bolt clamp. and if you have to use the stock hose clamp, spray some hairspray on the hose before you put it back on and let it dry.

Never thought about hair spray since I'm bald... Gotta try that...

Also check the condition of the hose. At 40 hours mine was bulging and the lining was comeing apart. I replaced the hose and used a T-clamp and no issues since.
