Question: High Pressure Hose
Is this part easy to replace? Is it a threaded connection to the unit? It looks like it is in the photo.
Reply: High Pressure Hose
I purchased the green unit and NO it does not have a threaded connection. It has the cheapest air chuck you can find that has a metal band to crimp the hose onto a plastic/nylon barb. Again, a metal (brass) threaded connection would have been much better here. I carefully cut the band w/a Dremel tool, pulled the old hose off and replaced it w/a Topeak Smarthead replacement hose so I can inflate presta bike tubes. I'm not sure if the hose pictured on this site is the blue unit, if so it must have been a better engineered model.
Question: Housing Assembly
Once I've removed the screws from the housing assembly of my Ryobi inflator, how do I separate the two pieces?

There is one screw under the label on the back. You can feel it with your finger. Just poke a hole with your screw driver and take out the screw and it'll open right up. You will likely be voiding the warranty by doing so though.

Rich, thanks so much, your tip really helped.
Peter, yes it is easy to replace but you need the tip from Rich to open the housing because the last screw holds it together.
pkin33, just get that last screw out as Rich says and it will fall open.
One more thing of note: there are 2 different sizes of screw. Note which ones come out of which holes. Bigger ones in the legs and middle, small ones generally around the perimeter.
after taking out the screws,How do you get the P730 apart?
