I recently purchased a 1978 Concord Motorhome (class A) with Dodge powertrain.  It needs little things, but seems in pretty good shape.  I drove it home (about 100 miles), and found no major issues, but at home, a couple of tubes in the radiator began leaking. 


I would like to remove the radiator, and can't see any way to do so without removing major portions of the RV.  Can anyone give me some good advice?

Dear phill I have a 77 dodge concord. In order to fix the alternator bracket I had to take out the radiator. Unfortunately. I had to take off the front of the motorhome to do it. I tried to remove the radiator through the thin horizontal hinged panel above the lights but could not. In trying I broke the oil dipstick guid tube. Just take the front panel off and save a lot of frustration. Andy
