Antifreeze change

After replacing antifreeze on my 2005 Monaco with 400 isl cummins. Is it necessary to burp air from top of engine? I believe the water pump will force all air from the engine. On my Duramax there was a plug to let air out. Thanks for your help. It is good to have a place for these things not known.

I didn't on mine, went down a gallon or so in the 1st 500 miles both times I changed it. Has the aquahot loop and the run to the front heat.

On my coach there is a small diameter hose coming off the top of the thermostat going to the surge tank. It circulates quite a bit of coolant through the surge tank to back to the radiator. Any air will be purged via the surge tank.

If yours has a similar setup I'd advise to check the small hose from engine to surge tank, mine was very hard and brittle when I changed the surge tank so I changed it.
