EGR Hoses melting?

This problem is noticed by many others too.
The EGR hoses getting burned and EGR sensor getting melted.The problem can be faulty EGR valve.So first inspect and replace EGR valve.
But if the valve is already replaced.
Then it can be issue with catalytic converter.
Sounds like the catalytic convertor is plugged in the exuast system or you have a restriction elsewhere in the exhaust system causing an increase in back pressure,lack of power and making the egr system hotter with the increased temps,melting the hoses.You can loosen the header pipe connections and see if you have an increase in power to verify the concern.Catalyic converter failure is the most common based on your description.
Getting this possibilities checked will help.Thanks.
