Air Intake Hose

Good afternoon to all,
Checking my rig out and noticed some pin holes in the air intake hose just before the air cleaner. The hose is 6" x 74" and is like a real heavy duty dryer hose. Has anyone replaced this hose? If so where did you buy it?
I have checked NAPA and the local Peterbilt dealer and they don't have anything that big (6').
Thanks in advance for your help

If you do a Google search for 6" flexible duct, or 6" flexible hose, you'll find all kinds of listings and images. Aluminum, plastic, wire reinforced, etc.

If "just before the filter " means the hose from outside air intake to the air filter, I would say no worries. The air is still going to the filter, then being cleaned and on to the engine. If the pinholes were found between the filter and the engine you do have a problem.

Air Intake Hose

I had same problem. Poor design and install. Monaco p/n 01808459. The hose measures 6.372 inches ID. Monaco buys it from Motion Industries 800-526-9328 in 25 ft sections. Jay at ext. 112 at Motion Ind. sold it to me for $5.00 per ft and only 10 ft length plus shipping. Monaco wanted $8.16 per ft. and would not cut it. I have not figured how to attach new hose at the top, its inside my rear cap. I duct taped the three foot section of hose as it attaches to the air filter intake. I probably will just cut the bad section off and insert a 12 inch length of 6 inch gal. pipe and then connect the two. I vacuumed out the filter housing and replaced the air filter. Any ? my ph. is 1 727 519 4389 Hope this helps.

While doing a service and inspection, I found some small holes where the intake hose was in contact what some screw points. Being that this was before the filter, I wrapped the hose with some good wide duct tape and moved the hose over so it was not in contact with the screw points. Then I secured the hose with tie wraps so it would not get close to the screws. This is just another 'item' to add to my yearly inspections.

I will say it one more time. No need to replace the air duct BEFORE the air filter. Pin hole leaks don't matter. What ever tiny bit of dirty air comes in the pin hole will be filtered before it gets to the engine. If there was no hose at all your engine would get only clean air. The reason for the big hose is to get cool air into the engine. Not to worry.

Ross, we got the message the first time, you let small problems go and wait until they become big ones. Ever hear....Stitch in time saves.... Well you know. Suppose the OP decides to sell the RV, how will it help the resale price if there are deferred maintenance issues like the intake hose found through out the vehicle? Many folks like to take care of things before they become bigger.

The man said PINHOLE leaks. That is not a problem. A small dollip of silicone should solve the apearance.

Air Intake Hose

Why not correct the problem rather than replacing the $50.00 air filter more often. Other than cooler air intake, less road dirt coming in at top air grille. Pin holes and cuts or splits in hose defeat the design of higher air intake. JMO

An air intake hose repaired with globs of silicon doesn't speak highly of good maintenance, especially when it's a $50 part on a $100,000 rig. I'd start looking for other 'repairs' like foil on fuses and chewing gum as glue.
