You can get high temp silicone hose from any hydraulic shop. My local one sells it for $2.50 a foot or less. I've been using the same hose for quite a while now. It should last atleast 2 years. Depending on how often you pull it on and off. It gets stiff after a while.

I feel your pain... if mine had been 1/32" higher I would have had the same problem.
