    Default Rewarder water injection tube quick fix?

    So I'm an idiot, my battery slid forward and the positive terminal made contact with the most rear water injection tube on the starboard side, instantly welding a tiny hole in it. I'm going to havasu in a day, any good method of patching this? Step one is putting a rubber boot around both battery terminals...

    get a small piece of vacuum hose or fuel line. Split it lengthwise, slide it over the hole, double hose clamps. That'll get you back on the water quick, just keep an eye on it and replace/repair as soon as you can

    You could also get a brass double ended compresion fitting to repair this, might be a little "clunky" but would be a permanent fix Tom

    I don't know what material rewarder uses but any welder worth a damn should be able to close it up. In my honest opinion I would have it welded when you get to havasu. There's alot of weld shops up there and it should be a 10 minute job.

    I think step one should be to mount your battery so that it cant move around.

    Thanks for all your responses, I used the vacuum hose with a hose clamp and a little gasket sealer worked like a charm. Now my trucks front left brake caliper is going out again. Gotta fix for that? Haha talk about bad luck. Using my dads trucks now. Bad things come in three's, so only one more bad thing can happen!
