Default Leaky bottom tank?

Thanks all. I moved the coach from the storage yard yesterday and brought it home to the new pad.

I get up today and have a slow drip from the bottom area of the rad. The dealer had the radiator recored when I bought it. Told me he 'take care of it'. Anyway, The core is new, but the bottom tank is rusty with a nice shiny coat of black spray paint on it. I am going to call the dealer tomorrow and see if they will own up to it since I only took it on it's first trip (WOG) and it did this.

I saw the hard line at the bottom and it's rusty too (everything is rusty on my coach). I like to replace it. Anybody have a source for it or do I have to weld up a stainless steel replacement from stock.

I have gallons of rust converter and a coating to try to treat the frame. That on my list once the garage goes up in January.
