    I had a hydraulic line start leaking on my dump trailer it had been rubbing against metal. Do they make premade ones that I can switch out? If its a little longer will it make a difference? And what type of business sells these? I'm going to check a big trailer store tomorrow but its over an hour away.

    Go to any machine retailer. They should either have one that will fit or better make one. Put some chafe gear on it before installing. Goodluck.

    check a farm supply ,or heavy equipment place ,they should be able to build them for you in a few minutes ,as for getting them longer ,that depends on just what they can rub on or get tangled in ,sometimes an inch longer opens up a pile of problems ,sometimes they help .I would try to figure a way to keep the new hose from rubbing though ,or you will just be doing the hose replacement again shortly .
