Pesky Leaks

I’ve been living with an intermittent coolant leak for a couple years now. Just waiting for the right time to BLOW all the coolant out on a big hill, YIKES!

Big ole crack in the aluminum part which holds the plastic tank onto the radiator core

So, now that I have some free time and some helpers I decided to tackle those pesky leaks and skip over the part where I’m stranded on the side of the road waiting all day for a tow truck. My friends and I managed to replace the radiator, water pump, fan clutch, and fan belt in about half-a-day. I decided to replace all the mission-critical stuff behind the radiator because it’s just so easy when the radiator is out and so hard when it’s not

And the propane hoses stared leaking just a week before the regulator died.

Out with the leaky, in with the new (again)

The propane regulator is the second one of that brand to die and all the hoses (4 of them) ended their lives with a leak. Thanks China

I bought what I hope is a better regulator and hoses from PPL motorhomes. Time will tell. I set it up the same way as I did them before without the double bend in the hose.
