I used 1 1/2", but measured the tank nipple with a caliper. Order an extra foot, for bends and ease of working. Then cut with a hack saw, and snip the wire, and vacuum the i/s before connecting.

Answer Question


can this 1-1/2" diameter be preshaped prior to installation? I have a tight radius coming off the aluminum tank connection and wanted to minimized the strain on the fitting. I was hoping to get some shape into the hose to effect a 45 degree bend. (ps I know it's flexible but is there a way to get it to hold a shape? )

I am not aware of any method short of securing it to a piece of rigid material that forms the angle.
