If you really want a 12" hose, give this place a call. They usually state out of stock in the ad, so they may have what your need. I bought lots of brake parts from them in the past and they are pretty prompt with delivery.

Ran into a snag..
I could only bleed brakes was with activation manual over-ride in vehicle because hydrastar would run. Even if I ran the gain up to 10
Called hydrastar and said I would need HBA-CAM 381-7073. The issue is how GMC programs the OEM model and has varied over recent years including some 2021 Yukon.

Another member reccomened https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Bra...c/RED44FR.html but would I still need the HAB-CAM?

Specs say you can use it with EOH, but why would spend twice as much money for a controller you don't need? The OEM controller works well and you don't have to bother with an install of something different. I believe a couple of us advised you to get the CAM anyway when you purchased, as it would be cheaper than buying it separate. If you needed it, you have it. If not, sell it. There are always guys looking for a CAM. Your choice but the CAM would be the easy way to go. It's only two wires to connect and two holes for mounting screws. You don't have to pay the big $$$'s for the Hydrastar CAM. You can use the Titan or any generic you find out there. Lots of big trailer shops carry Titan and/or a generic a lot cheaper than the Hydrastar and Etrailer.

As stated earlier, it's a crap shoot with GM. Either '15 or '16 models forward, the OEM controller is supposed to work as is with EOH. Earlier you have to have the "fooler" wired in to get the controller to recognize it. Later than those years, who knows. Some do work without the CAM and some don't.

Three or four years ago none of GM dealers had a clue about why the factory controllers would not work with EOH. Their info said no way they work with EOH, electric only. So, you can't go by what they say, as they only go by what GM says. Kind of the same with Hydrastar back then. They did not know. However, in their defense, not many people knew how to make the controller work correctly. At least, it sounds like Hydrastar listened when people talked to them about the issue and are relaying that to customers.

First thanks to "Craney" for sending the Cam module but didn't need it after all, so if anyone needs it I'll pass it along. I had to pull boat before getting the module because Ida storm coming our way. As soon as I started moving, vehicle picked everything up and brake are working. So far I like the EOH system... any tips for setting "gain control" and also any need to change while towing?

thanks
