18 hours labor to replace radiator in 2003 DOLPHIN ?

Had this done under warranty But the shop took 18 hours of labor and the warranty company went nuts....put paid.

Apparently (and this was confirmed by another Workhorse dealer) that WH put in the radiator and built the frame around it. Instead of the other way around. This was done only for the Dolphin

So my question is to Dolphin owners: Have you had your radiator replaced and how did it go? What have you heard from other Dolphin owners about this procedure ?

For what it is worth, we do not have a dolphin, we have an 87 southwind on a chev P30 chassis and it took 10.5 hours to R&R it when the mechanics pulled it to have it boiled out, pressure and flow checked.

r&r radiator

When we had the radiator replaced in our 97 dolphin it came to about $2200 But at the same time the mechanic suggested we replace the waterpump, hoses and belts which seemed like a good idea
