Hose size for LTR raw water pump inlet


I'm planning to inspect/purchase a 2000 model with an LTR. I would like to make an "engine filling" bucket to flush the engine and fill with RV antifreeze for the 900 mile trip home. If all goes well after the test ride, it should be a quick deal and I will need to be back on the road.

So, can somebody verify the inlet hose diameter? Is it 1" heater hose?

When I get it home, I will do a proper drain, but I don't want to make the trip from the north east to the midwest with only water in the cooling system, trans cooler, low spots, etc. and worry about having missed a drain area on an engine/system that is new to me.

Thanks in advance.
