upper radiator hose

I got a reply from Dave Fernandez saying hes using a piece of straight hose cut to fit. Im wondering if anybody is using anything else or is a straight hose piece the only available fix.

If so is it holding up long term. The original shape hose seems to be out of production.

I'm not questioning Dave's advice just curious about any other fixes.

Thanks, Terry

Post up type of RV chassis, and maybe someone could find you a hose, I know a few people have used the flexible straight hose with success

The straight stick of Radiator hose has been used on Commercial Tractors and Diesel engines for years. It is Radiator Hose and comes in about a 3 foot lengths and is cut to fit. It is not designed as a flexible hose. There is nothing wrong with using a straight stick of radiator hose.

If you preform a google search for the straight stick radiator hose you will see what I am talking about.

I believe I used a 2 -inch stick of Radiator hose; I could not find any extra around the house to measure or get the size off. I did measure the radiator pipe and it was 2 -inches.

I bought my coolant hoses from Napa Auto & Truck Parts. The Napa part number on the receipt for the molded upper hose is 7905. I also bought 1 1/2-feet of the 2 1/4-in stick of radiator hose part #637 and 2 1/2-feet of heater hose part #H-151.

If you need a bend in a radiator or coolant hose, google the diameter & stainless elbow.
example
IIWMI'd use double hose clamps on straight end pipe (no nipple to grab on)
