98 Eagle front firewall air manifold (Block)

My friend has a 98 Eagle with the front firewall air manifold (Block) threads are leaking. Does anyone have a source for this Black plastic manifold?...maybe in metal? I have attached pictures. It is located on the driver's side upper right corner when facing the coach. Thank you for any help at all.

..... after taking several pics, writing down the colors and placement of lines, remove it and your should be able to get a hodge-pod group of fittings that will work. Or maybe ever JB weld the crack in thread. I've seen people drill and tap threads into well cured JB weld.

Have you reached out to REV Fleetwood?

So JB weld is all anyone has on this? No place to buy a replacement manifold?

Mackwrench says to build one out of fittings.
I think you can do that also.
Use brass fittings.

Or
A fab shop, machine shop can make one exactly like you have if you want.

You have to remove it and investigate

No, there's definitely passages in the block.
The green lines are part of the primary air brake system, the red are for secondary brake system. The aluminum valve is a one way check valve that keeps the secondary system aired up in case the primary air system looses all air.
The "tire valves" aren't required and are only used to fill air system, or a technician can check air tank pressure there for troubleshooting...

I wasn't be a smarty pants about the JB weld, and it's not an acceptable DOT repair.

But you may very well be able to creatively plumb up a group of fittings that will work, won't be pretty, but safe.

Or the part may still be available from Fleetwood REV...only a phone call will determine that.
Peace!

EDIT.....I just went out and looked at my same vintage Eagle. That block also has lines though the firewall that feed to dash valves and air pressure gauge.... looks like a bear to remove.

For me
It would be a job for a DOT approved shop.
