Cam monitor - my GPS is eventually going to be placed permanently next to it.

I had suggested mounting it up high for a better perspective, but Cherry didn't want any more holes in the fiberglass roof, so mounted it to the plate mount on the spare tire cover.

Still working on that - may be a collapsing lower radiator hose. A new hose is on order.

If I remember right the lower hose on the radiator in my motorhome (class C on a 77 Ford chassis w/460 V8) has a spring in it to keep it from collapsing.

When you take the old hose off look and see if the spring is in there. If it is damaged or missing that might be part of your problem.

Good luck
