Hmmm... "remote part of the world"... All I can say is that in Austria
(western Europe, not usually considered "remote") where my trailer
hitch broke down, I was not able to locate a replacement hose, either
in the hardware store in the small town where it broke down, or later
in a Home Depot type store in a larger city. So I wouldn't necessarily
assume you can find a replacement for this particular part easily.
