I can see that the AttacherPipe "script" isn't part of 19, and I was using that in 17 to attacher a skinned node to a trailer, for connecting hoses.
How would I go about doing that for 19? I tried the connectedHoses, but I can't get it to work in any way. And as far as I understand it, it'll just "generate" a hose between 2 joints, it won't make 2 joints snap together like the attacherpipe did.

I'm new to all this but if I understand you correctly, you want to get a vehicle and trailer hooked together with a hose but also be stuck together rigidly? If so you could try using that connectedHoses to take care of the hose connection and then use <specialization name="attachable" /> and make a node on each for them to snap together with for the rigid connection I think.

No not exactly, it's a seed drill with an attached commodity cart. The hose mesh is on the drill, and I have a skinned node I want to attach to a point on the cart, so the hoses between them flex. In 17 I used the attacherPipe for that, but it seems to be gone for 19.

Examine Giants' models for usage of connection hoses.
Hint: search for xml tag <connectionHoses>, espec. <target attacherJointIndices... type.. node../>

Do you know that it's possible with connectionHoses? Cause from what I've seen, it only generates a hose between 2 joints, it doesn't snap 2 joints together.

Unluckily the spec "connectionHoses" isn't published (yet).
I'd assume, one could define another "type" of hose. So far you have to use the default ones.
For seeders exist already similiar. See the seeders with external seed tank.
