Coolant hose leak??

We have a 2008 Neptune HR with a Cummings 5.9 ISB. A week or so after we returned from our 2+ month trip as we were moving the RV back into it's parking place next to the house, we noticed a line of coolant on the ground and on the trailer hitch. Upon inspection it seems to be coming from a coolant hose going to the right side of the motor on top. Tried to access it from under the bed, but couldn't even see it...any suggestions on how to get to the hose and tighten it/or replace it?
Thanks for your help.

It's a pain to get to some of them but need to get in there sometimes from the bottom or top sit down on the engine just watch where you put your feet get on something solid, try to tighten any hose clamps seen also make sure your overflow tank is not full but up to line

Thanks, as I said before I can't even see the hose from the top....guess I'll just have to make a reservation at Cummings and get it fixed.
Thank You for your suggestion.

neptuners....A couple fo things to check. You have a medium sized (about 1-1/4") return hose that goes to the top of the overflow tank. You should be able to see the overflow tank and check that hose. You also have the drain for the radiator on the driver's side/engine side of the radiator. It hards to locate and may be dripping. Check from underneath.

Is your closet in the rear of the bedroom? If so you may be able to remove the floor in it and see the hose from there.
