How do I make a mesh from split lines on tubing?

I am trying to simulate a chassis with a 5g loading 35 cm from the ground with a length of 10 cm. I have set up split lines at where I want the 5g force. However, I have not been able to get the mesh to work properly. The meshing always fails around the split lines on the tubing. I have tried mesh control and adjusting for finer meshes, but still one tube will fail (I used split lines for three tubes).
Even when I was able to get the mesh to work correctly, I ran into an error that the beam is not properly bonded to the shell/solid. I do not have that file, but I like to know how to solve the meshing problem. I am pretty new to simulation and any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
