Re: My KM is here
My KM 1001 Nights did the same thing. This may sound strange, but if you put the grommet in the hose port first, then insert the hose, it works better then putting the grommet on the hose first. For some reason the KM hose ports do really rip up the grommets. I was able to use my KM hose without a grommet or leak. KMs are worth it, so enjoy the nice rig!
