Hydroboost question

I was poking around in the engine compartment today and noticed one of the hoses from the Hydroboost unit is loose. It does not show any signs of leakage and the nut is tight into the hydroboost housing but the tubing is able to rotate left and right.

The hose in question is the one on the drivers side of the unit, I believe it is the low pressure/return side of the unit. Has anyone seen this before. The hoses on the hydroboost in my K5 are all tight and do not rotate. I just thought this was odd.

Thanks

Dik

I carry a Lance 845 part of the time and it stops well even with the camper.
