post #2901 of 106449
So I extended my radiator hoses so the radiator sits right in front of the A/C. Today I am noticing some condensation on the inside of my reservoir...must be because the water is colder than the air.

Anyways I was planning to extend my radiator hoses right out the window in the winter time. Now I'm thinking I will have to deal with condensation all over my hoses and everywhere.

Anyone ever try pumping ice-water through their loop? Is there a way to beat the condensation?


EDIT: how do you get the air out of an upside down radiator?...............Turn it right side up and make it the lowest point in the loop, and the reservoir the highest, for burping purposes.

if the condensation is inside your res it is not from the water being cold, that just happens.

if it is on the OUTSIDE then you need to worry

ok well it is on the inside....pretty humid today so maybe that's it(I have the cap off)....but I'm thinking it will be on the outside when I start pumping ice water through there.

But I really want to do it.

EDIT: I was working in Norfolk Monday and Tuesday on Azalia Garden Road @ AT&T. Way too HOT down there for me!!!
