I am getting ready to clean the rear Radiator on my motorhome

Does the Back Grill come off the motor home to get better access to the radiator

Mixing up a solution of simple green HD Pro and water to spray on the radiator

I have an 08 Holiday Rambler Endeavor thank you all

If yours is similar to my coach, open the two side doors next to grill. Then pull grill out. The doors help hold it in.

I use simple green also.

Be certain to rince very well

For quite some time.

The first rence I add a drop of Dawn soap.

 

Then pure water after that. 

Lots of water.

Have you used the simple green that is safe for aluminum.

( For aircraft )

( Non corrosive )

( Non hazard ) allowed for use in Harbors also

Yes, follow directions, dilute as recommended,  as I stated above.

I do rince heavily.

First time rince with a light dawn suction.

Yes

For aluminum air plains,  airstreams 

We order the simple green on line 

Some evening After you clean the radiator, put a light in the engine compartment shining on the engine side of the radiator. You will see the spots that may need additional attention.

I Don't know Paul ?

I always wash , rince the engine and engine bay down with a solution of dawn or such.

Then rince , then blow dry with a leafe blower. And air Chuck. As a part of the radiator rincing process. 

Then we wipe most everything down that we can reach.

I think cleaning the engine and engine compartment is a part of the radiator cleaning process. 

I do have the original radiator that Monaco installed in 99.

Every now and then I visit with source engineering and they think the cooling  unit will last another 20 years the way we maintain it.

We do use  the same process with the 14 farm over the road MACK  tractors that we have.

Regardless of the product that you choose to use

1. Follow the directions 

2. Wash till clean.

3. Immediately rince

First rince with a mild detergent

Then rince, rince, rince with lots of fresh water.

Immediately blow dry as good as possible 

Then with an air Chuck.

Then hand dry as much as possible. 

 

I hate residue, calcium or soap residue on any surfaces.inside or outside. 

Paint, fiberglass or any metal.
