Thanks, Mark for your input. The sad thing is that I listen to the guys at Rockler, buy what they suggest, do what they say to do, and it is still so difficult to put it together. I have noticed that my older black hose fits together with all the other parts very easily. It’s the new clear hose that seems so much smaller in diameter. Yet, both claim to be 4”. Also, this new clear hose is packed in 3’ lengths but says it’ll stretch to 10’, well currently it’s more like 6-8’. Maybe over time it will get to 10’. I have noticed the thicker walls and the ID being a difference, and that adds to the problem with the couplers and blast gates.
