While establishing the location for all of the doo-dads in the basement of our MH, I noticed that the street-side tire valve extender hose from the inner rear tire, appears to be unattached from the outside chrome wheel cover.
The extension hose (metal braided) itself doesn't appear damaged or excessively worn against the openings in the wheel, but the "L" bracket fitting for the air-chuck, threaded end of the extension hose is missing, and all thats left are the remnants of two tiny spot-welds where it should be on the chrome insert.
Now centrifugal force would keep the hose extended on the outside of the outer wheel, but with the oscillation of the wheel up and down as the tire, wheel and suspension takes the bumps and bounces, gives me cause for concern. We are getting ready to start to use the MH pretty heavily and I certainly couldn't afford a major cost, like that of replacing a tire that went down due to a cut tire valve extender.
Do they sell these little L brackets that I can reattach myself with a tap of a wire mig welder to the trim dish, or would I be better off and replace the dish completely?
Any thoughts or ideas? TIA
