Default air lines

Does anyone know a source for the +/- 1/4" nylon air lines that run all through the coach? I have a slow leak at one of my pressure switches (for the step and suspension) and the aux compressor is constantly cycling on and off. I want to buy a spool of the air line and replace most of the lines that have shrunk due to age and the Florida heat.

Thanks for the feedback

Chip

You are looking for 1/4 DOT compliant tubing. Do not use the stuff from Lowes/HD.

McMaster Carr isn’t the cheapest source but sells in long rolls and colors, plus it will show up at your door.

Any Parker hydraulic store will carry it.

You should be able to buy DOT tubing at any GOOD auto parts store.

Search for any heavy duty truck parts store. They will have rolls of it, and probably a bit cheaper than at an auto parts store.

If they utilized push-in fittings, that will more than likely be the source of your leak. Change them out to the compression fitting with a Ferrell.

I had the same problem earlier this year. After getting the bird up in the air and crawling around under there to find it. The problem was the pressure protection valve and both of the step air control valves. Before you run out and buy a spool of line, make sure you know where and what is leaking. The step control valves were a cheap and easy fix the PPV was a serious pain.
