Alpine Coach Radiator

Does anyone know the manufaturer or model number for the Alpine coach? I have a 2005 34 diesel pusher 400 hp Cummins with a leak in the radiator and we can't see the numbers or manufacturer info anywhere on the materials. Thank for the help.

Are you lucky enough to have the 'build' sheet for your MH? The frist owner kept all of the paper work and we were able to get this information off that. It sure helped! Good luck.

2) You'll get great info posting in the more mfg'r specific Alpine Coach Owner's Forum here on iRV2
3) you can avoid a lot of repetitive info in your postings by adding a "signature" with your make, model, year, coach length, attitudes about life, marital status, etc. that appears automatically (like mine below)
3) radiator was made (defectively) by Radiator Specialties of Sacramento, CA. They now make a replacement which has better weld seams & more vibration resistant mounts. Ecellent replacements are also available from Mac's Radiator of Portland OR (google), and others. You can do a search on the Alpine forum and find plenty of threads on the radiator failure & known options. WRV had a lawsuit w/R.S. and got ~100 radiators as a settlement before the factory went kaput. There is a guy in Yakima who has one or two left from the factory liquidation as well, Burke Morgan, and you can P.M. me for his phone#

steveamc......My 05 Monaco developed a leak two years ago and I was amazed that how hard it was to find a radiator at a reasonable price. Most everyone wanted $3500 - $4000, just for the radiator. I was eventuallydirected to some left over new ones at a surplus place for $650.00.

I found later that most had better luck finding a truck repair facility that would rebuild the one you have or make a new one from copper.

Good luck!
