Default insulating tape

i see on the v3 systems they give you some type of black insulation to wrap all the lines in what is this stuff and can you buy it somewhere without buying the v3 kits. Thanks Brad

Yes, do you have a Locke Supply or Ace true value around?

Got some at Home Depot and at Lowes before. It's like $7.90 or something. One entire roll only made it from my tank to my V3 manifold and this is on an extended cab truck with the lines entering the tank on the same side as the manifold. It doesn't go as far as you'd think, so buy extra and just return what you don't use.

You should be able to ask a store clerk.

It's in the plumbing section and it's cheap, so use LOTS of it - as in at least double-wrapped.

I have also used foam pipe insulation and zip ties. After installation it may make things easier to slip it in there in the tight sections and zip tie.

I think I'm going to try this stuff to go over my single layer insulation tape for winter use. Just slip some on and see if it helps. Couldn't hurt..
