Georgie Boy parts

Well for the 2nd time since I owned this "90" GB the fuel hose the makes a right angle bend to the gas tank has cracked. Has other people had problems with this. This time though I think I am screwed for finding a new one. GB was bought up by Coachman and Coachman was bought by Forest river. Forest river does not list GB on their website. The part was not a GM part because they did not supply a 60 gallon tank with the chassis. Will a radiator hose hold up?

When ours cracked, I replaced it with a marine fuel/water exhaust hose and used an exhaust pipe for the bends.

As I remember it was a pita to do because it goes through a hole in the frame. So I don't know until I get into more AGAIN. The hose makes a pretty sharp 90* bend. As I remember the hose is about 2-1/4"-2-1/2" diameter.
