Based on his source for a radiator and his knowledge of the labor involved, Kevin Waite estimated $5K - $8K for parts and labor to replace the radiator. I don't remember if that included the CAC but if I ever have to replace mine, I will do both the radiator and the CAC.

CC quoted me 3495.00 for the radiator plus shipping and 150.00 for crating. Bought one locally for 3200.00. Took two guys about 4 hours to remove and I assume about that to re-install. Hope this solves my overheating problem.

Are you going to install new t/stat's and a good Cat EC-1 Rated coolant.
When I did my 06 Ford with a 6.0 to ditch the junk Ford Gold coolant I used 1/2 gallon of Restore then flushed then 1/2 gallon Restore+ flushed. When done I used 52 gallons of distilled water and went back with 3 1/2 gallons Delo Cat EC-1 coolant and 3 1/2 gallons of distilled water for a (50-50) mix and new t/stat with only 20,000 miles on it. Now I have a good cool running truck.

Just curious if those of you who have replaced these defective radiators also replaced the charge air cooler at the same time. My CAC looks identical to my radiator (mine is one of the 'suspect' radiators) so figured if the rad ever springs a leak, the CAC would eventually do the same.

Met a fellow CC owner here in MB with a 2006 Inspire. He is original owner and said when they visited CC for some other service in 2007, CC replaced his radiator under warranty. He said the radiator was not leaking to his knowledge.

The cac can be easily tested before re-install.If no leaks just reuse.

Agree but, at least on my coach, the CAC seems to be the same material/construction as the radiator. So, if the radiator is prone to leaking (due to faulty construction) and the CAC is from same vendor/construction, why take a chance? Looks like you would have to drop the radiator to R&R the CAC.

Isn't the CAC just a smaller radiator?

Its built a little different. The tubes are set in rubber gaskets at each end. I did buy a new design called bar and plate that was a soldered unit. I cleaned the gaskets on my cac and tested and it passed fine.
