Power Steering Hose Leak

2003 KR 4X4 Screw 199kmiles. Noisy power steering prompted me to look at the fliud level. I added 8 oz Mercon to get it to MAX. The noise went away. But, there's a wet red stain on the rear hose coming out of the reservoir. This hose makes a transition from rubber (?) to metal about a foot below the reservoir. Thats where the leak seems to be... up inside that slitted corregated plastic covering.

Are there O-rings at that transition point? Will a simple hose clamp do the job?

I'm going on a trip tomorrow. How many quarts of Mercon should I take along??? Just kidding.

I don't believe so - that's a manufactured hose.
