Leaking AC Hose

I have seen several threads regarding leaking AC hoses and replacing connectors, etc., but, have not found how it was done.

I have a leak on one of the hoses coming from the compressor, it is located at a "factoring looking" crimped connection where they spliced in a fill valve. There is oil all around one side of this valve where it attaches to the hose going to the front of the coach. I put in about 4 lbs of gas and it lasted about 3 months.

Has anyone had success crimping these hoses themselves? If so, where can the tools and parts be acquired? I really dislike the idea of having to pull a new hose from the front to the rear of this coach. I have a 2005 Monaco Executive 45 CAQ.

Thank you in advance for any help/suggestions.

JT, sure you can replace a crimped on hose end. A special crimper is needed. Hose ends can be bought at any good auto parts store

I've crimped several with success

Hey, this is a great start, thank you.

It is definitely worth trying. I will let you know how it goes.

JT, odds are the discount auto parts stores won't have the AC fittings....Napa, Carquest, Parts Plus or possibly O Riellys will stock them

If it's on the low side of the system, you can actually use a hose clamp.
