Yes, they would be jacked up if they are running on the pink RV ethylene glycol based antifreeze. Even though standard green automotive AF may contain ethylene glycol, it also contains many other corrosion inhibitors that neutralize the effects of the ethylene glycol.

Tommurtha - The pink RV antifreeze can be both ethylene or propylene based. You have to read the label to find out.
