To the original question, I don't have a clue what paint was used on your roof. But to the comments since, I have used Henry's mobile home elastic roof coating for the last 8 years and I found it took 4 gals to put on the original coat and a follow up every other year takes less than a gallon and keeps the roof cool and looking good. I put it on with a 3" soft bristle paint brush that you find in the dollar shop for a buck and the lines flatten out before it dries leaving it relatively smooth. I wash the roof yearly with a mild bleach solution and a soft car wash brush to keep moss from growing on it. Walmart carries the Henry's product for under $15. a gallon or $50. for a fiver. The key is to put it on thick and let it flow out smooth. A coat of wax goes

Napa store, any hose shop...While your there get some hose and ferrels unions...one goes others may be close behind....

Will the replacement hose come with ends? Or are the ends user replaceable? Or will napa install the ends? Do I remove the hose and take it to them?
Sorry, have not dealt with this before.
There's not a napa close, but there is an orielly. Would they be able to handle it?

My 4104 has what looks like original window tint on the windows. The side windows are bluish and the rear window is yellow or maybe light brown.

The rear window tint looks like it is in between the layers of glass, since this window is no longer available and the brown tint is very ugly I was wondering if anyone else has had this same issue and found a solution to make it look better.

I was thinking about trying to tint it very dark black and see if it hides the brown color some.

Hey guys, thanks all for the replies and things to look for. At first I suspected the rear relay value since it's in roughly the spot the sound was coming from.

Anyway, I finally 'nutted up' and got underneath the bus. I used some of the stackable rv leveling blocks we had and stacked them under the engine cradle front mount. Not exactly perfect, but good enough.

Armed with my spray bottle of soapy water I proceeded to hose everything down that I could, to figure it out. After some random spraying that accomplished nothing, and after developing more confidence (or is it stupidity? I don't know the line is so vague Smiley) I crawled further under there.
It became abundantly obvious, no spray bottle needed, lol.
One of the brake lines had a pretty significant slit in it. It's (one of) the line that runs from the passenger side dd3 to the reversing valve. I think it's the "Parking and Emergency port". It actually looks like there's a seam that runs the full length of that air line. The leak is in a split along that seam.

I tried a little bit of 'George Engineering' to see if I could get it sealed enough to get it to a diesel shop (long shot I know, but 'George Engineering' has occasionally worked in the past so I figured WTH. I wrapped the line up in some heavy duty pipe tape (fancy duct tape basically) and <shock> it didn't work, lol! It worked for a bit, but considering the pressures that line is under it's not too surprising my little rigging job didn't hold.

So now I'm kinda stuck. The bus won't hold pressure to make it drivable and I'm not sure I'd drive it in its present condition. So I can't get it anywhere to have it worked on.

But after spending some time staring at it (I've gotten entirely too comfortable being under the bus at this point) it occurred to me that i could actually replace this line, if I have the hose made with the ends on it. It just looks like a neatly threaded connection that I should be able to remove from the dd3 and the reversing valve side, and install the new replacement line.

The question is, now, where or how do I get that line made? Is that something that's a standard issue part that can be bought somewhere? Is that something that has to be made? Is our good friend Luke able to provide me with such a thing?
Any other advice?

Thanks again in advance,

But he said it was at the back of the bus, not at the front.
