Radiator repsir


Recommended Posts

Friday we accidentally poked a hole in the radiator on our 2002 Knight.  We have a trip planned and finding a new radiator is problematic.  We were able to remove the radiator out the back and a family member who owns a welding shop was able to weld the very small hole shut.  We were able to reinstall everything thru the back without even going inside the motor home.  Just did a 20 mile test run.  No leaking!!!

Great job! I bet that you wouldn't want to do that again especially when you have a trip planned. Accidents do happen and I have had my share of them. It's all on how you manage those "problems" to get the job done.

Great job! I would not want to tackle that.

Hubby had it disassembled in about 4 hours.  Cleaned inner cooler, transmission cooler, and the radiator without cutting anything or getting inside motorhome.  All done thru rear hatch.  He had it reassembled in about 3 hours.  He is amazing, if I do say so myself!!
