Front end air hose to wheel rubbing on wheel well

I am noticing a slight rubbing on BOTH driver and passenger side of the hose that connects to the wheel (air brake line) on the wheel well. The motorhome is parked in the my driveway and I noticed that I can see where the hose has been slightly bumping/rubbing against the wheel well when turning. I don't think it has rubbed very much and it doesn't appear to have any damage to the hose or to the wheel well, but I can't help to think that this is not normal. Can anyone tell me what the story might be on this before I bring it in to the shop?

Why would you need to bring it to a shop? Get a piece of rubber hose with an ID the same size as the rubbing hose and slice it and slip it over the rubbing hose. 10 minute fix.

I think that is a good idea for a temporary fix, but I don't think the hoses are designed to rub against the wheel well, so I am trying to understand what might be wrong.

Sometimes you can loosen one end of the line, twist the line a small amount, Don't go more then a 1/8 of a turn, and tighten it back up.

That twist may keep it from touching the fender well.

Yep. Either of the above solutions would work very well. In some brands, a piece of electrical split loom plastic shielding is used. This will also work very well and is a quick and inexpensive fix. Secure it with zip ties
