Ford V-10 Coolant Leak

I have a 2006 Fourwinds Windsport motor home with the Ford V-10 engine. Over the last year, I have had an intermittent coolant leak. The coolant drips off the inside (engine side) of the radiator on the driver's side. It seems to be related to using the heater during travel. I can not seem to replicate the event at idle. Any ideas about what is going on or where the possible leak could be? Football girl's husband.

Take it someplace that can pressure test the cooling system. When it is under pressure you should be able to see the leak.

I had a leak like that on a Dodge truck, could not find it. Borrowed a radiator pressure tester from Auto Zone. As soon as I hit 20 lbs I saw the leak. Pin hole under a clamp.
Good luck
