Replacement hose for old hoover canister?

I have a hoover powermax canister vacuum from many years ago (possibly > 10). The hose has fatigue cracks on both ends. I duck taped them but air still leaks.
I look up the part and it appears the manufacturer is no longer selling a replacement hose.

If possible I would like to repair the hose. There are three wires in the hose to supply power to attachments, but this should be a common feature for many canister vacuums. So is there a "generic vacuum cleaner hose with wires" I can buy somewhere? If not, I'd even settle for a generic vacuum cleaner hose and just run an extension cord inside or outside the hose

model: Hoover powermax S3611

The three wires in the hose may be a common feature but the connection method is not.
Actually powered canister accessories is not common either.
Usually only found on more expensive models.

You left a picture but there is no model number on it.

If I can find a new hose with three wires, I can attach it to the existing plastic handle and solder the wires. This was bought from costco for about $300, but it was many years ago. Model S3611

I was looking for new old stock. Thought I found it. It was incorrectly listed.
I didn't find any three wire hoses in my search.
You may need to attach a separate three wire cable to the hose.
