Has anyone replaced their radiator over flow tank on a Cummins Diesel? If so did you have to go to a dealer for a replacement? What was the cost! It's on a Freightliner chassis.

I had mine replaced by Freightliner. They used a metal truck over flow tank and fabricated a bracket system to hang it. Unfortunately I no longer have a visual of how much fluid is in the tank so every once in awhile I have to use a dip stick to check it.

Some one stated they had problems with the plastic ones, leaking at the seam. They have improved the newer ones. I had my leak at the seam.Freightliner replaced mine. Had to go thru the bedroom. Can't remember the cost.

when the second plastic one on the safari started showing 'age' at only (2) years after install
i found a powered coated steel one online thru a link on a Monaco Forum
that was in 2014 IIRC it $149
it did come with a site glass, although i had to move it to a spare 'hole' facing outside what was the rear of coach
