Heater Core leaking-Newmar Dutchstar Diesel


Seeking suggestions on a leaking heater core on my 1995 DutchStar IC-2242.

I contacted Newmar directly, but they have not replied to my inquiry yet.

In the meantime, is it possible to repair/solder heater core? I recall taking my radiator to a shop in the 70's which is pretty much the same isn't?

I haven't removed it from the RV yet. Does not look too difficult.

Thanks for all your suggestions in advance.

Many heater cores can be repaired, especially if all metal. If plastic and metal, maybe not. If you remove it and take it to a radiator shop, they can tell you if it can be repaired.
