Unhappy I'm so bummed out

After starting the MH this morning and letting it run awhile we noticed a little spray on the driveway. Coolant , we are "were" just finishing up a few things before heading to Quartzsite.
If it is the water pump we will not be able to go again this year 3rd year I am desperate to know whats it like to be a Sno-bird.
I know its a old MH, coming up on 32 years old but couldn't this have happened last summer instead of now @ 11 above. If it wasn't in such good shape it would be a hard decision to make.This and a cracked manifold, 2 years ago are the only things we have had to deal with the old gal. Knock on wood.
Will know more tomorrow before the game or after the game. Venting over till tomorrow...

Sounds like you need to get one of the portable kerosene heaters, drag out the wrenches and start pulling the water pump.

I know you are bummed out.

before you "panic" it might be a simple fix like a loose hose clamp.when the temp drops the rad hose harden and could start to leak.i hope this is all it is.good luck and keep us posted.
