hydronic heat

Has any one ever had a leak with one of the radiators at each individual fan? I believe our bedroom one, in our back closet, is leaking. I can smell glycol when it is in use.

Hello RJO and . We are glad to have you join iRV2.com and the Country Coach Owners Forum. We look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
Have you checked first to see if it is not just a loose pipe connection? Anything is possible but get it fixed right the first time.

The reason I asked about model and year is to find out when the coach was built. Some coaches used a hose material that when it gets hot, you get the antifreeze smell. Mine did that when new and it took about 2 years to go away. I must say that the hydronic heat wasn't used full time so the time period could be shortened.

I have never heard of the Red Dot radiators leaking.

2000 magna, bought it last May, working through all the minor problems. The hoses are silicon based.

I have a 2002 Intrigue and we had a problem with the blower/heater up front. I thought it was the core but it turned out one of the connections was loose. I had to tighten twice and the problem went away. Not sure why it came loose. Good Luck.
