Any sealant used on the ends?

Here's my commercial LevelAire bags. Cost me a lot more than $9/foot!

I painted the black centering lines on them to aid backing onto them.

I did use a little silicone on the ends and around the valve stem. I am not sure if it is necessary, but it could not hurt.

Those look very nice. Now what are they made out of and any hints on how someone else could do this.

You can find the flat hose at any large hydraulic and hose shop, check the yellow book. You might want to take a picture with you. I used 2 pieces of 1" channel for the ends with 1/4" nuts and bolts about every 2". I got the bolt in valve stem at the auto parts store. Good luck with project. If you need more help just holler.

Hose specifications: 8" diameter flat discharge heavy duty red. Do not use light weight blue hose. hose source 509-535-3638 current price $8.99 per foot.

Thanks, Dale. What length of hose did you use? (Ours are in the trailer which is locked in a barn at the fairgrounds).

You ready to go into the kit business? [emoticon] We have our set, but you've seen the interest.

I made mine 24". It seems like people love them or see no value in them. Although I made a set I do not use them. I started this thread that shows what I use on our TT.power levelers

I use them and love them, I believe they are the best product since the power tongue jack. The original maker of Levelairs is no longer making them, and that is a loss for all of us because he was a really great guy and this was his idea that he made a reality. Guy's bags were very high quality and worth every nickel I paid for them. If the only way to get them is to make them yourself, then I would use a flat bar stock and not the C channel, provides a flatter bag when done. I made a Y adaptor to fill both my bags at the same time, and it works awesome!!
