Is this a problem Late 04 & above with aluminum radiators ? Mine has steel tanks & brass core. If this is aluminum only then I might be safe. Just checking.

When ours started to leak it was very similar to what Jim experienced. Sometimes a small leak, sometimes no leak at all. This went on for months before the leak became a bit more steady. However the leak was never so bad that we worried about using the coach. Just decided one day to get it fixed while our warranty covered it.

I vote for replacing the radiator cap if you are sure the coolant level was proper before seeing a leak. If you do not have an overflow tank there must be an air chamber in radiator top, or coolant will be expelled when it gets hot. Checking coolant level hot is a sure way to obtain 3rd degree burns. BTW, all coolant tanks have hot and cold liquid level markings to observe.
