Question Coolant Hose replacement

I am going to replace some coolant hoses on my 2006 Camelot 42-DSQ while converting to a wax-valve fan control.

I have a section that has a "jog" in it. Is this a special hose that you can order, or is it just a straight section that has been forced into this shape??

preshaped would be best take old one with you should not be diffulct to find something that will work may have to cut some length off if you cant get an exact copy. if you go the straight piece and force the bend you will need a anti collapse device (spring) on the inside

Or you could have a steel tube bent then ad a short rubber hose cut for each end.

I'd look for a preformed to fit. The problem you are going to run into, if you shop locally, is that most auto parts places don't stock 2" hoses. You could also go with one of those accordion shaped hoses that bend easily.

I have not been able to find a pre-formed one. I did order this one. Should be good for the intended service.

After ordering the flexible hose, I found this on JEGS as well. Looks like it might work so I ordered that one too. One of them should fit!!

Locate the 2 clamps on the metal pipe, to the left. They will look like exhaust pipe clamps, welded to the frame rail. Loosen the clamps and reposition the metal pipe so it lines up with the one to the right. You may have to loosen the rubber radiator hose at the other end. Once accomplished, you should be able to use straight 2 1/4" radiator hose.

I had to relocate mine, as it was touching the thermostat housing pipe and at an odd angle too. Your coach was built to use a piece of straight 2 1/4" hose to join those to sections together.

I did wonder about that, but looking at it, the other end of the metal tube makes a 90 deg turn then connects to the top of the radiator with a short (6) section of straight hose. Not a lot of opportunity to move it all to line up with the thermostat housing. But I will try.
