Question about Dodge Cars & Trucks
I removed the bottom right radiator hose from the radiator. There was no fluid in the radiator to drain out. There was fluid in the reservoir and in the engine when I started to remove heater hoses. No engine over heating, no instrument panel indications and no sign of leakage. Anyone ever see or hear anything like this?
Remove the radiator cap.
Remove the radiator drain bung from the bottom of the radiator.
Drain fluid into a container.
If no fluid present, then refill radiator and perform a system pressure check.
Once all fluid has been drained, and any faults repaired, then refil with a 50-50 water to anti freeze mixture.

It is highly probable then that it is in fact the heater hose leaking. Here is how.
If your radiator level remains full, then it won't draw coolant from the reservoir. The reservoir is also an over-flow bottle in the event the engine over heats and the coolant boils, the steam can be released into the reservoir...which is obviously not happening so we don't have to consider an engine gasket leak.
The only other places that you can lose coolant from then in your situation that would be rather obscure is the heater hoses. They are in the flow path of coolant after flow through of the engine. Thus why your engine is not over heating. If they (the hoses) are leaking then the coolant return amount to the radiator will get low enough to create a siphoning of coolant from the reservoir that you have to continue to keep filling.
