Rear Rad replacement

2016 winnebago forza 34t. Freightliner XCS Chassis. We had to replace the rear Radiator on our Forza while traveling. Matheny Freightliner shop In Mineral Wells WV did the repair work. $4100 in parts and labor. 3 days in the shop. Very good service to get me in and fixed in a timely manner. They actually had 30 new radiator in their system. Freightliner says rear rad corroded in bottom corners and gave out. We were ready to head over the mountains when i discovered the leak at the CG before heading out. My question has anybody had any luck with Freightliner or Winnebago with help on cost. Say a refund of sorts. New radiator after 6 years sure seams odd. Seems like Freightliner would be my first call.

I'm shocked every time I hear about these $5000 radiators leaking.

A cheap car radiator can last 20 years, no issues...

I doubt freigtliner will help though.

Seems like the key is to blow out any debris that forms in the corners of the radiator.

On my freightliner chassis there are bracket supports in the corners. The passenger lower one is AWLAYS clogged with dirt, touching the radiators. Likely encourages rust...

Blow out that area often with air, may help...
