That is the A/C condenser. I would crawl under the rear of the rig, look around for 2 valves on the heater hoses going up front and turn them off so no coolant goes up to the front. Mine are yellow valves, and are on the driver's side. That should take care of the leak and get you to a repair shop.

Thank you, thank you all!!

Thanks to everyone!!! We located the shutoff valves and have stopped the coolant leak. No dash heater but that's okay. We are continuing our travel plans and will try to get the hose replace/repaired in Duluth, MN. At least we aren't going 120 miles out of our way. I can't express how grateful I am for your advice. Thanks again.

If you don't need the heat , may be easier to wait till you get home , to replace heater hoses, end to end , requires the basement to be empty for access.

Yes it is a PITA to replace heater hoses make sure your wallet is ready for it. There are dozens of clamps in nearly impossible places to get to. Do not go cheap on the hose either it is gonna take you a day or 2 to do it yourself or likely 10 to 15 hours in a shop to have them changed. Every part of that job sucks I have done a few and every one sucked to do. All of that hose was installed before the coach was built.

I have not tried this yet but there is a new product out that you can get at lowes and probably other places. It is a type of I believe fiberglass wrap or something like that. You wet it then wrap it around the leak. It is made to fix a leak or broken handle on a shovel or about anything. I think is about ten dollars you might try that.
