Not a good perm fix.
A) Another term for this is a PRV. (Pressure Relief Valve). If the pressure within the hose exceeds the friction and clamping force on the bolt, "Fire" (not likely to be "ready" and hopefully without "aim" at anything important. (OK, moreso with an air line than water
, but you get my drift.)
B) When (not if) the hose deteriorates, it will need to be removed or replaced. If not addressed in time, a leak will occur.
In all cases it is wise to remove wiring
, and virtually any component or system that will never be needed, nor add boat
value. It just avoids future problems (or the potential for them).
