Air lines

I have a 2002 Tradewinds Founders Edition MH with a Frieghtliner XC Chassis. I discovered a air leak in one of the air lines, it looks to be in the middle of the supply line for the parking brake. I am replacing it, but it looks like the line disapears to the front of the coach. I have a couple of questions.

1) Can I just replace the section of the line that is bad and couple it to the remaining good of the line?

2) Does anyone have a air bake diagram of the system they can send to me. Just would like to know where each of the lines comes from and goes to.

3) The line is black and if it goes all the way to the front of the coach, how do you pull through the new line? Is there any easy tricks to do this??

Thanks in advance for all of your help!

While I was working in the trades, what I would have done was to locate the source of the leak, cut the line with a tubing cutter and insert a short section of line using 2 unions. If the repair doesn't leak, I use soapy water in a spray bottle, you're good to go.

I wouldn't go through all the trouble to replace the entire line.

Call Freightliner in Gaffney, SC and they should be able to provide you with an air line routing schematic.

Freightliner will be joining us soon by sponsoring the Freightliner Owner's Forum and I expect that that type of information will be made available or the means to get at the information will be presented.
