Fuel filler hoses? Radiator hoses?

My buddies and I have come a long way with our 76 Itasca project. Its now registered and just about ready for the road. We decided to clean out the tank since it had been sitting for several years when we noticed the rubber hoses that lead from the gas cap to the tank are rotten and leaking. They look like big flexible radiator hoses.

So far the only parts we have had to purchase was for the Chevy parts of the MH, but no idea where to find parts such as this. Are these model specific or a pretty common part to find?

Go to a good parts house and get hoses that will not come apart with gasoline (neoprene hoses). The radiator hoses will eventually cause problems in your fuel system.

Any good hydraulics parts and repair shop should be able to supply you the correct hoses.

Napa or truck service

This is not difficult, contact Napa, year make model, they have a great system that may have a listing.

Next check truck supplies, industrial rubber supplies or RV servicing dealers, many ,may have the hise in stock if it was a common type.

If no results, then check local sources for fuel hose of the diameter installed, then once a source is found, carefully remove the old one, if it needs to be cut then mark it to realign if molded.

Examine it, there may be a Gates or other part number on it somewhere.

Good luck!

The hose you are talking about is a special gasoline resistant hose. I had to replace one on my MH. If you can, take the hose off and take it with you to NAPA --- the diameter measurement is critical. Be ready to "pay" for this hose -- I bought a 10 inch section about 4 years ago for my replacement and I think the cost was around $24.00. As I recall, the diameter measurements change every 1/8th of inch.

Any truck service center should have them, They are neoprene cored to hold up to fuel and also have a spiral wire wound into the wall to prevent collapsing. They are stiff to work with but should hold up well. Mine was too long and fuel tended to burp out at high speed truck pumps so I took the sag (and resulting pocket) out of it by shortening it. You'll need a good wire cutter, such as a Knipex, to cut the wire.
