TOAD vs. radiator

Hello,

Does anyone have input as to whether a rear radiator causes issues with a TOAD? Is a side radiator less likely to hurt the TOAD?

The position of the motor home radiator should not matter to the toad....

Side radiator, draws air in from the side of the coach , blows it across the engine and out the grill to the rear.
Rear rad pulls up air from ground level under the coach and blows it out the rear of the coach.
In both cases really harmful debris would have to be small enough to pass through the rad before it gets to the toad, so I can't see any difference.
Majority of damage , to the toad, will come from stuff thrown up by the dual wheels , that manages to bounce around long enough to get that far back.
Don't now if any one has really studied this , but I can't imagine the difference would be dramatic.

Radiator position will have no affect on the toad . . . How ever from a maintainence standpoint i would prefer and have a side radiator. The radiator stays cleaner and is not affected by the dirt and oil from the slobber tube that gets into the rear radiator. Also if you have a belt go or other issues the engine is right there and you don't need to remove radiator to get at the belts.
