Coolant Leak

I took my 2006 F53 chassis into a Ford truck service center for service. I asked them to check the cooling system because on long trips I would find that my coolant level was low. They found and replaced two broken clamps on the lower radiator hoses. I hope this eliminates my need to add coolant while traveling.
I've read that hose clamps can be a problem on F53 chassis. I asked the service agent and he hadn't heard any thing about a coolant problem on F53 chassis but the result was not a susprise to me.

That is not the answer that I would have expected. Cooling systems on new vehicles do not typically leak at hose connections. The cooling system connections are all completed at the time the chassis is built.
