Yes, this makes more sense.

When you use ad-hoc multi-hops, Tramp caches for every target host the
hops it needs to go there. Likely, in the latter case it uses its cached
values for "slave" from the second line.

I recommend, that you add aliases "slave1" and "slave2" on host1 and
host2. This could be either in /etc/hosts, or in ~/.ssh/config of the
root user. And then you apply


Since these are very long file names, you might declare Tramp aliases
for them. See the discussion in the Tramp manual, chapter "Frequently
Asked Questions". And don't forget to enable `tramp-save-ad-hoc-proxies'.
