Yeah, those Viair leader hoses are shit. The one on my 450 broke when an empty rubbermaid box hit it. They suck. And yes, there is a check valve thats probably been messed up and/or broken. Just get you a new one from SuicideDoors. I don't think they're that much.

ok so then maybe if i could get some good line and then go with a new check valve from smc that would be better than a normal hose

Sweet, but do make sure you get a good check valve, not one of those little 1/4" pos. I ran a Mack trucks valve when my little pos died. Three years and still works like a champ, its 1/2" too.
