I don't believe that I have a coolant filter. I have it on my list to add though.

On my coach it is cut into the heater hose feeding the water heater and has valves on the input and output to isolate the filter when changing.

Last year, after a coolant leak, & not knowing any better, I re-filled with regular "green" antifreeze from Walmart, mixed 50/50 with distilled water, cost a couple hundred bucks. I'm still losing coolant a little bit, about a gallon every 1000 miles or so. Can I start topping up with one of the HOAT brands, or do I have to do a complete drain, flush & refill? Or are there any additives I can use with the anti-freeze I'm now using to prevent engine block cavitation?

I would dump the green and get the stuff Detroit recommends asap. Coolant on a Detroit does a lot more than cool. It prevents cavitation to your wet cylinder liners. It ain't worth an engine.

You can use the green as long as you add the required SCA additive. You can buy test strips that will tell you when you have the right amount.

Some of the coolants like Fleet Charge (NOT Final Charge) is just the green (ethylene glycol) with the appropriate SCA.

You don't want to mix the green with the new stuff like Final Charge or the new Detroit Power Cool.

I just had my water pump replaced at Stewart and Stevenson and they saw that I had the green and just filled with green plus the SCA. I personally carry Fleet Charge since it already has the SCA pre-mixed and is about $15 a gallon for the undiluted and relatively easy to find.

Don't mix. Green is fine, but MUST test, and add sca additives to proper level to prevent cavitation. MUST.

Ditto, Green is good never mix glycol with the others, use test strips, or purchase premixed, if you want to change empty and thoroughly flush the entire system. NAPA has the SCA

I run the green 50/50 premix as do a few of us all from the same supplier. Regardless, we still check regularly with the test strips.

As info.
