If you can get to it with your hand or a good pair of needle-nose pliers it should be an easy enough fix. Well, also assuming it's a typical hose with clamps.

You should be able to pick up the hose at any parts store, a lot of shops (Independent shops are a little more generous) will sell or even give you that little bit of hose. If you find a clamp broken, stripped, or otherwise damaged replace them with ones from the parts store also. Depending on the age/hours of the generator the hose may not want to come off extremely easy but she'll come and should be easier to put one back on. If it is stuck on, take a pair of pliers, squeeze right after the nipple (where the hose gives) and twist. Should break it loose. Slide the clamps on, pop the new hose on, clamp it down good and snug.

If it's not that type of hose... well, I've never worked on an Onan. lol

Hope it helps though.
