Good reason to inspect and clean your rad BEFORE the trip. Changing air filter etc, inspecting rad should be done before you embark on a long trip in an old rv. Just saying. Would have saved you a lot of headaches.


Apparently you are not familiar with the side mounted radiator on a Spartan chassis. Even cleaning the radiator is a several day job if you do it yourself, which includes removing the hydraulic oil coolers, then removing the charge air cooler, and THEN you can clean out the radiator. Not an easy job.


Today is my personal best for most consecutive days alive.

Didn't get any easier doing it on the side of the road, or broke down somewhere.
