I have a 2005 36 foot Alpine that I just drove across the country in the dead of winter (which in retrospect, may have been a bad decision). We just relocated to the east coast, took the RV to storage and when we arrived the radiator was leaking.
Repair shop says the radiator and CAC are bad. Suspicion of salty roads wreaking havoc on it. They've charged me $2500 so far for taking it out and sending it off for testing. Quoting me $5,500 for a new radiator and $2,900 for the charge air cooler. Add in an engine tuneup and the whole bill is going to run about $11,500. I get that things are more expensive here than the midwest but does a dead radiator really the cost the same as 38 new iPhones?
They say the price is because they have to make a part from scratch since Western RV is out of business and they can't buy one. Anyone ever have to replace a radiator or CAC on their RV? Thanks in advance!
