I have the all-too-familiar leaking hydraulic lines above the radiator but cannot figure out how to open the the cover to see the problem more closely.
Also, is this a HWH warranty issue?

On our coach the grille over the radiator is bolted with 3 bolts at the bottom - one aft of the exhaust. The brackets that hold the bolts keep breaking on ours -- I have two broken and one was rewelded by WRV, and broke again. I'm going to figure out a better solution.

Our second two sets of hydraulic lines were covered by HWH, after the first round was covered by WRV.

The radiator grill bolts at the bottom and is hinged at the top. Be careful when you lift the grill cover as it comes off if you lift it above horizontal just as the storage compartment doors. I found out the hard way when the weld shop was reattaching the bottom hold down brackets after Cummins overtightened and broke them while replacing the radiator. The welder had the door held up with a board the grill came off the hinge hitting and gouging the radiator and putting a couple of scrapes and gouges in the coach paint! Harold

The easiest way to do it is to:

1. Remove the three bolts on the bottom of the grill.

2. Have one person on each end of the grill and slowly rotate the grill to a horizontal position (about waist high).

3. Lift grill slightly above horizontal and pull away from coach as it releases from the hinge.

To replace just reverse the above

Clark, That cover is heavy so have two people ready when you take it off its hinge. It really caught me by surprise.

I made a 2x4 post that would prop the 06 rad grill open just below 90 degrees, then rerouted the hoses to the ceiling (off the radiator) & secured them there. They were that way when I traded it in.
