The flex lines are made of Weatherhead braided stainless steel
hose with Teflon lining and machine crimped fittings. These hoses
are rated at 1750 lbs and from -100*F to +450*F. These are manufacturer
tested ratings and well above what we need for our coaches.
(Actually I prefer the original 455 set up. The solid steel
tubes are as close to bullet proof as you can get.)
I offer a replacement for the OEM rotary leveling valves. The originals are made of a pot metal material and have been the source of continuous problems from the very beginning. My valve set consists of two high quality brass valves, a new face plate, and all new quick connect fittings. These valves are rated at zero leakage at 1000 lb.psi. This is a little more than our 125 lb.psi max. These are the best valves I could find at a reasonable cost. This set is an exact replacement for the original and needs no alterations to replace the existing set.
The cost of the rotary valve set is $325.00 plus shipping.
I think this system is the best of the three air leveling systems that GM offered. The rotary valves are the simplest design, with the least amount of connections, and with the new valves have less chances for leaks.
As always, I want to say that I am not in the parts producing business. I make these parts as a service for my fellow GMCers. At the risk of sounding corny, I'd like to say that I just like these old coaches and will do whatever I can to keep them on the road.
The valve set is also offered with severe weather valves which are rated to -65* F. The cost of this set is $385.00.

Hardwood Adjustable Table
These neat little tables come in either oak or cherry. They're just right to go between the cockpit seats and then move down to between a couple of barrel chairs when parked. They fold up neatly for storage or travel and include a magazine / map rack.
