Mines a 2005 (Beaver with C13) so may not be exactly the same as yours - but should be similar.

Look up on the passenger side (between headlight and generator) for the heater hoses where the heater control valve is located. You should see a set of heater coming up from the frame direction, and a set of hoses going into the heater plenum. Just remove (or cut) the hoses coming up from frame direction and plug them. That will block off the coolant flow to the leaking heater core. Then you can deal with the heater core at a later time.

Thanks. It was even easier than that. All fixed.

The hoses came from the engine from under the passenger side of the generator as described. I wasn't looking for a Y, and there was one. The hoses from the engine split to two entries and exits from the plenum. 2 Red, and 2 black hoses. Could tell today, because I looked right after I shut the engine down. They were hot.

Pinched off the two hoses, removed the hose clamps, and removed the hoses at the Y. A little hose splice connector in both ends coming from the engine, replace the hose clamps, and voila. No more leak. Coolant flowing from engine, and back to engine.

Maybe at some point I'll replace the heater core etc. But, there's no hurry. We don't really travel in the cold. We are chasing 72 degrees. :-)

I'll post a picture later. Will be really easy to install two ball valves as described above when I decide to replace the heater core.

Thanks all for the help.

Glad you got it sorted out.
If you add ball-valves, I suggest you install them at the engine, then if a hose bursts anywhere between the engine and heater core, you can shut off the hose at the source (the engine).
