Not true they replaced the complete cooling package as a unit on my 2014 Anthem at Cummins Northwest. Billed Spartan $6600.

well, that may be true for you, but it was definitely not true for me.... the charge cooler was returned to the factory and that was done at a Cummin's owned shop. Maybe that was the issue.

Oh. my radiator was replaced fairly "early" in the radiator problem as it evolved. The radiator had to be dried and sent back for metallurgical analysis as they were trying to get to the bottom of what was failing.

What generation of Entegras had a radiator problem and what was the nature of the problem?
Thanks

The radiators started having the problem in 2013, see post #4 and continued until late 2015. With a 2016, it would be worth a call to Spartan with your VIN# and see when your chassis was manufactured and see if yours has the new radiator. Spartan will only replace it if it leaks, but at least you will know how close your have to watch it.

Evidence of the leak is loss of coolant, then one of the lower corners will start to show wet spots of fluid. Some will be slight leaks, others will be gushers. The problem are corner joints that are now epoxied on the new radiators.

Are there any visual identifiers that I could use to determine if I have the "old" radiator arrangement or the "new" arrangement?
Thanks

Is this a warranty issue?

Of course it is..... we have a 3 year warranty on all things Spartan so radiator problems are a Spartan issue. Now, they have had a lot of problems, and I notice that your coach is a 13 or a 14 so you are either out of warranty or soon to be out of warranty and it is unclear if they will continue to accept that this is a problem that they will make right even after warranty ends.

It was an internal fix, nothing to show on the outside, at least on mine.

Thanks Mark. Hopefully Spartan got it right with the new radiator.
