Windshield Washer Hose

The windshield washer hose on the passengers side of our 2008 Kountry Star broke off a couple of inches from the wiper base. The hose is the type that feeds up into the wiper arm. We are travelling near Newport Oregon and no RV dealers close by. Any bright ideas on how to join the 2 pieces back together?
Need a quick fix. Thanks for any suggestions

Hi DocJim,
Any auto parts store should have a way to splice the line or have the line in stock. The line is a standard size for the industry.

Hardware store should have size plastic nipple for hose size, just push into each piece of hose.

When I needed some, the only parts house that carried it in my area was NAPA. They matched it up. Cost 52 cents per foot.

The Autozones and Advance had some vacum line, same size hole but dif dia. I keep 6 ft spare in my ready kit.

Two of them. as the first responder said the hose is standard at most any auto parts store or HARDWARE store, easy to replace.

2: I got a bunch of vacuum connectors.. these are plastic thingies with barbed ends in assorted sizes.. The SMALLEST as I recall, works with washer hose to re-join the hose at the break..

page 2

Mine break at the wiper end of the arm (Well one of them does) turns out (And the vacuum hose coupler is what gave this away) the routing of the hose had the arm parts pinching it as the wiper wiped.

I taped it out of the pincer's way and... No problem since.
Home is where I park it!

Check Valve for windshield washer hose. Do anyone know where I can purchase one of these. When I use my windshield washer, it takes a long time for the water to reach the windshield. Checked the motor, it was ok, checked the check valve and I could blow air thru both ends. bad check valve.
