They are specific to the chassis so you need to buy them for your motorhome. They have specific hardline sections with threaded fittings for the back of the pump and into the boost. There are two; one from the pump to the hydroboost power unit and one from the unit to the steering box. AZ sells both lines.

One note, the line from the pump is tricky. Since damaging the pump housing will void your warrentee I had the AZ guys install the line into the pump for me. No extra charge and it was ready to install when I picked up the pump. Typically the pump is a special order item and requires three - four days for AZ to get it in.

The low pressure line is essentially cut to length tubing with band clamps back to the pump for return fluid.

HB - Hydroboost.

Steven,

Thanks for asking. It turns out that the hydroboost was OK, it was just a HUGE amount of air in the brake lines. We bled them, first the rears and then the fronts with a power brake bleeder and the brakes are as good as new. That sure saved me a ton a $, now I get to return the hydroboost, master cylinder, hydro high pressure lines. We also replaced the valve cover gaskets because i was getting some leakage. All in all, it was a great day!

One question i have and i know a photo is worth a thousand words, but for the life of me i can't figure out what a certain toggle switch operates.
It is on the lower portion of the steering column. there are two red wires. One is ground and one goes to the solenoid in the engine compartment.
Then on the other side of the solenoid the red wire goes out to the refrig, where there is also a ground wire.

Now I have a small 110v refrig (purchased the coach this way). I am wondering if this was a switch that flipped the refrig over to 12v. My friend thinks it is. Any thoughts?

Good news on not needing any of the expensive parts for this repair.

Not sure about the switch...sounds like something the Previous Owners (PO) must have added. Does the solenoid look like a cube (used for driving light relay, etc.) or something larger?
