Go to Lowes or Home Depot, they have bulk hose that is clear with a filiment winding in it. I did this and mine has been on for over 7 years. I attached it by drilling through both hoses and running a long screw and putting a wing nut on the other end. I used enough so I could hang the extended tube from the back of the MH up off the ground. That put it way past the radiator.

Oil will , eat away at most heater hose materials over time, turning them to mush. You need a fuel rated hose or copper tubing for a permenant fix.

Ok, if this is true what hose do I use?

I have been running 1 inch clear hose from Ace Hardware for over 7 years on my '97 Dodge dually 5.9.

A fuel rated hose!

BTW, it is important that the hose pitches continually downward to the open end.

I used 3/4 inch copper pipe. It will never rot out and you don't have to worry about it drooping and having oil plug it up.

You can get a fuel/oil rated hose from Napa. But I can't believe you have a 2006 coach that doesn't have a crankcase vent filter. I recently replaced my old slobber hose with a filter and no more dripping. Racor Crankcase Ventiltation Filter Systems Applications

You better be careful. Someone will steal your copper pipe!

I used black 1 1/2 inch pvc thick wall pipe and a couple of elbows to plumb it
to the rear. All down hill and none of the problems hose can give you.

It has a slobber tube and I have to get it a little longer behind my radiator so the oil mist wont cover the fins and clog it.

I used plain old white PVC pipe, pitched it to the rear slightly and ran it within a few inches of the rear flap. 2 years, so far so good. And no cannot see the pipe unless you crawl under.

Here's a early thread which has a host of info on slobber tube extensions. There are a variety of designs that incorporate copper pipe, PVC pipe, electrical conduit etc. and several takes on "capture jars"
