If you found one line leak. There are many to follow. Replace all. You may want to look into an additive for the diesel. Something to look into. With the new low sulfur diesel.

I've done it myself, and its almost harder to describe how to do it, than to actually do it. Here's a description that I downloaded from the forum. This is courtesy of a rivet master.

"cockpit windows fuzzy channel replacement"

"while at the Florida rally i spent a few bucks on parts for the silver weenie. fuzzy channel was one of the items and i did it today. i was dreading that job but was i surprised . it was a breeze. Brett and i discussed how to do it .
open window, remove lock (don't drop the screws they are hard to find) and shove window all the way forward.then take a putty knife and pry enough of the old fuzzy channel out so you can pull out exposed channel cut and dispose. the channel under the window will be removed after you push the window to a almost closed position be careful as the window will come out and you don't want to break it.
remove window, install the fuzzy channel and cut to fit tight. this needs to be one piece. remove the fuzzy channel to the top track and hang out side, out of the way. put window in top first and sit the bottom of the window in the fuzzy channel. push the window forward and push fuzzy channel in the top channel. this will require some moving the window back and forth to get the channel to where you can get a pair of pliers on and pull it thru the track. install lock and spray some silicone lube in the fuzzy channel and slide back a forth a few times . walla your done. first window took 25 minutes second 15 minutes. those little screws are hard to find.."

PSIClops XL-180

PSIClops XL-180.

Used to make sure you have the same pressures in two tires.

Nicely made. less than $25 shipped on eBay.

There are other models, but you want the XL-180.

Paul

what I bought for my 345LE today

Well, since I've had to park my Airstream out on the street until the weekend, with it having just over 40 gallons of gasoline in the tank, and no way to lock that gasoline away from thieves, I purchased a locking gas cap today. Does anyone know if it matters if gas cap is vented or not? Old cap was not vented and WHEW! does that thing let out some fumes when you open it up.
Thanks, Derek

Got mine today Paul!
Thanks SO much for sharing and passing that on...
To say I am impressed would be the understatement of the day!
In its big hunking blow-moulded case, you find a beautiful die cast bodied tool.
Comes with batteries for the backlit dial, and a allen key to insert them..
The whole thing feels good and well made.
I suggest everone should have one, and at $25 and free shipping you should have one in the Airstream!
More pics..

This thread may require a sub heading called "What did you buy from ebay today?" I just can't pass on a cool piece of hardware. Guess I'll go next.

Oh Man, I shouldn't have, but I did! Can already see that Camping World is going to be my favorite shopping place. Gotta watch some of the prices, but they have a great selection! This is what I bought for my Airstream today.....
