2004 E350 6.0L Diesel SMB Air conditioner hose

Hi everyone, I have a 2004 E350 6.0L Diesel SMB and the A/C went out. There is a leak in the hose for the high side port of the A/C unit. The mechanic cannot find a replacement hose nor is there anyone local who can make one. There is no identification on the aftermarket A/C unit Sportsmobile (I believe) put in. I called the Indiana Sportsmobile and they do not have the specs on it according to the person I talked to.
Would anyone have any info on what type of unit that they installed back then? Im assuming Sportsmobile did it as there is a line going back we believe to the van AC unit. But I could be wrong.
Any guidance would be appreciated.

Should be (?) a StarCool III AC / or maybe Danhard AC - not sure when they (SMB Fresno) switched over ? Search this forum - recent threads detailing electrical schematics, etc. Good luck

Be sure to clarify for help on the forum -- is it the "chassis" AC hose(s) under hood with a leak -- or the "house" AC / StarCool III hose that's leaking ? Any reputable AC repair should be able to fix a "hose" - by measuring same - crimping, etc. If you have the schematics/info from the forum - it will help the "shop" -- even if it "costs" a bit more than normal !? BE AWARE - that the S/Cool "shares" chassis/Ford freon - thats why you need to tell any "garage" to fill freon to like 72 ounces of freon - NOT what the Ford AC / chassis freon "normally" takes - or the system won't work properly -- again proper terms helps everybody ! SEARCH - "StarCool III system on the forum -- good luck n!
