How long is the hose? My 84 has a 1/2 inch steel line that is about 12 inches from the mechanical pump. Its reduced in size to allow standard 3/8ths fuel line.

Fuel Line

Had the same problem with my vintage 1973 but I went to my local harware store and had hydraulic lines made up which solved my problems.

Are you talking about the hose that runs from the steel pipe that runs the length of the coach to the fuel tank in the rear? Mine had a 1/2" female thread to male barb coupler on it that took a slip-on piece of hose. Just make sure it's rated for fuel... I dont know what Fleetwood used in '85, but after a few years mine came apart in my hand.

I have the same hose on my '88 Itasca. It is a 1/2" molded hose. If the dealer can't order a hose for you it would be possible to fabricate one. If there is a hose supply in your area you can have them make you one.
If no hose supply see if you can find some 1/2" steel tube and have it bent then use short pieces of hose on the ends. Copper can be used to make the bend in a pinch but I prefer the steel.
You might check with a shop that sells high performance car parts also as they may have a hose that can be bent like the original and not kink or flatten out.

I have looked at mine and it is ok but I think I'm gonig to call my dealer and ask about the hose and buy it if available.

Try a marine supply, I found a hose I needed and couldn't find through normal channels at our local "boat" repair shop.
