    Buyers must be kept anonymous, and as usual, 10% goes to the big guy.

    Well here's what I have now. I suppose I could get a pogo stick and that may solve it but I was planning on getting a generator and putting it on the catwalk don't know if there's enough room for both .And the part of the line that. comes up from the cab is constantly rubbing the back of my truck. I never thought about it but I guess DOT could give me a hard time about that because it is rubbing.

    And the other issue is that my glad hands are a 90° not facing downward so the arc is so tight that unless I can hold that line up in the air the rubber is cracking already and it's going to leak.

    I had a problem with the electrical plug that's why you see the other plug there and that blue line is for my air suspension gauges.

    I'm going to pass by FleetPride tomorrow and I'm thinking about just getting a set of coiled Airlines for now. Whenever I get back to messing around with these lines I can use the coiled lines as a spare.

    Get a second spring retractor and loop your lines, like the pic I posted... If that coiled blue line is always hooked up, then coil it around the 3-in-1 or get it its own spring retractor.... Could also build a straight line instead of the coiled one and run it inside the black coiled rub guard.

    Get you a couple of these clamps... They are much better and less likely to damage your airlines than thise steel band clamps... And you dont need any tools to adjust them.
