05 34 Alpine Radiator needed

Hi'
We are new members and new owners of a 05 Alpine 34 with the 400 Cummins engine. The coach has been setting for 5 years and the radiator leaks so we need a new one. Can't find numbers or manufacture info on any materials so far. Anyone have a number or place we could find a replacement? I think all sizes from 34 up used the same systems as much as I can tell. Thanks and we are excited to be a part of the Alpine family. Steve and Diana.

Mac's Radiator in Portland, OR builds steel/brass direct replacements for WRV's original, and you should find their price very competitive.

Do a search of the Alpine postings and you will find very good info on who and what way to go with your radiator. This will provide you all the info you need to make the right decision. Also Burk Morgan, Yakima, WA, phone 509 961-0996 former sales mgr for WRV and a good friend of ACA has radiators available although they are aluminum.

I believe the radiators Burk has are the redesigned aluminum, not the original designed-in-failure radiators that Radiator Specialties dumped on unsuspecting mfgr's & owners. I don't know anyone w/a failure on that redesigned rad.

FWIW - THe place fixing our coach from the accident got one from Burke, and installed it. Just received an inspection report from Cummins Rocky Mountain, and they said nothing leaks NOW (they fixed a few of them) and it seems to be fine so far. I should have a final report on my experiences in about a month once I get down to it in Phoenix.

At 4-6 months after installing a new radiator (and other connections for Monty), IIWMI'd recheck all the hose clamp connections. Once the rubber connectors take a set, the clamps may need a few more turns for a proper seal.

Mike, I plan to baby sit all the new clamps and such about every two weeks for a while. Cummins changed two clamps which were not the correct size and checked all of them that were new. They also changed the CAC boots to the orange color and correct temp range. I also got new starting batteries in the deal as the heat in Phoenix killed the original ones. Hope my AGMs are still ok, as they were new as of last October.
