Radiator reservoir

This may sound dumb but..
On our front engine Blue Bird All American... The coolant reservoir for the radiator has two hoses. One goes to the radiator. Where does the other one go to? It seems to just be shoved around various engine parts and hanging down thru the engine. We are pretty sure that is not how it is supposed to be but can't locate a "hole" to stick the hose on. But we aren't too fond of crawling under the engine. Lots of "goats heads" under there.
This post is my opinion. It is not intended to influence anyone's judgment nor do I advocate anyone do what I propose.

Re: Radiator reservoir

Coolant reservoir overflow maybe?

If the coolant reservoir wasn't at some point open to air, when the system heated up and pressurized the bottle would blow up, no?
There's a hose on my coolant reservoir that just dumps to the ground, both on the bus and my Jeep.
