    Please forgive me if this is a topic already discussed.

    Looking for ways people help extend the life of there hoses. IE what they use to keep them from rubbing and such. Most of the problems on ours seems to be hoses where they rub the A frame and other components.

    heater hose, 1/4 fuel line and zip ties. 1/4 line cut in half around the hole in the d-frame for the wing hoses. heater hoses around the other hoses and zip tie them. been doing that for years and never had a problem.

    Was just reading your post in the other forum. That actually sounds like a really good solution!

    Hydraulic hose dealers also carry products that are made just for this purpose.

    Start by torching A-frame holes for the wing hoses much larger.
