I hope someone can help me out, or at least point me in the right direction. I have a '81 Itasca Sunflyer 26' (ICN26RB), and the radiator hoses are looking kind of ratty. I haven't been able to come up with valid part numbers, either at RV dealers, who refer me to the GM dealer (it is a GM chassis with a Chevy 454), or the GM dealer, who says the pns they show are obsolete, and that much of the time the RV manufacturers dont use the GM parts anyway. I crossed the GM pn's at NAPA, the ones they have aren't even close. Can anyone tell me where to find a valid cross reference for these, or a NAPA or come other comparable reference? Any help is much appreciated.

Brian

Brian, first let me welcome you to iRV2.com. We are glad to have you join us here and look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. You may have to drain the coolant and take the hoses off amd try to match them us at NAPA. Good luck and let us know how things turn out.

Hello Brian. You might start by writing down your VIN number and calling Winnebago; they may be able to get you some answers. their number is 1-800-537-1885.
And removing each hose and going to the parts store is the best fool-proof method to get what you need. Here in Ohio, besides NAPA, there's a host of other auto stores; -Advanced and AutoZone had hoses for my buddy's '84 Chieftain and they were nowhere near what the reference "books" called for... We had to look at all the hoses close in appearance and found what we needed.

Hi Brian,

My favorite on line parts store shows an upper radiator hose for your MH. Rock Auto
Any thing you can find at Rock Auto can also be found at your neighbor hood Advance Auto Parts store.
