Fuel leak at tank return line

Noticed fuel leak under motorhome during fill up when gas pump did not shut off and heard the sound of something leaking. Checked underneath and noticed the small return fuel line from the tank to the fill spout was cracked and weathered where it connected to the fuel tank. Leak stopped once the fuel level dropped below the hose level. MH is now back at storage lot. Anyone know what diameter the fuel line is so I can avoid a couple of trips up to the storage lot?

Rockettlauncher, I just noticed after I posted the note below, that you have a Newmar from the same chassis year as mine, so the below item is something you should look at when you are replaceing that vent line.

I cannot help on this question, but rather point to another issue. Year before last, I had to replace the main fuel filler hose, real bad leak while filling. 1. The hose was getting older. 2. The worst issue was the installation. The hose in question attaches to the fill assembly, and runs to a metal elbow that makes a 90 degree turn toward the tank and then is attached to another hose that then connects to the tank. (a lot of parts here, to do a simple task, hope you can follow this). After I had the new hose installed and tested out, I realized the main issue is that the intermediate hose between the tank, and metal elbow is too long. The elbow then does not line up well with the fill assmebly, so there is a kink in that hose. (the kink is where it failed.) The solution is to take everything apart, and shorten up that intermediate hose. It's not particularily easy to get at either. This is the case that, after I got the repair made and functioning, we went on a trip, and I forgot about the need to shorten up that intermediate hose. Soo, that goes on the ToDos list. (This is one that should have been recognized by the body builder, not everyone will have the same potential problem.)
