Hi,

My front rack was a disaster causing the engine to run 20 to 30 degrees F hotter. I moved the new rack to the back.


Regards, Don
My ride is a 28 foot Class C, 256 watts solar, 556 amp hours of AGM in two battery banks 12 volt batteries, 3000 watt Magnum hybrid inverter, Sola Basic Autoformer, Microair Easy Start.

I had the same issue but found my fan clutch was essentially worn out. The end result is cooling was ineffective with anything up front. Replacing the fan clutch fixed my issue.

That is my worry. Stuff up on the front rack affecting cooling ability, especially in 112-115 degree Texas days.

I DID TO AND IT WORKED FINE UNTIL THE TEMP GOT UP OVER 85 degrees. Then the 2000 would not start my AC

The easy start works at all temperatures

Stuff on front rack can highlight the cooling system problems, but will not affect good one.
On newer Fords somebody finally improved the dummy gauges.
When my engine starts heating up, at above 178F the numeric display shows above the dummy gauge. I like to push my truck on grades and keeping 60 mph on those 20 miles 5% grades in 124F did raise engine temperature. The highest I remember was 185.
Cools down in just seconds once I come to the top.
Did not research it, but I have 4 or 5 radiators/exchangers behind front bumper.
Intercooler is liquid-cooled and moved inside engine bay.

You know someone has a gasoline truck when they are pushing to keep 60 on a grade. [emoticon]. My Explorer is the same. F450 says how fast do you want to go!

lol. 5% grade is nowhere near pushing to hold 60, or 70, or faster with just a truck camper.

That would be me, rarely go over 60 anyway especially up grades. I prefer gas to diesel. V10 + 4.30

Don't know, lot of burned holes on Baker grade shoulder would prove otherwise.
"pushing" was used as loose description. New truck keeps 1600 rpm.
Still remember driving underpower motorhome there long time ago.
After all the downshifting it would hold 25 mph. I was ready to let the wheel go and go to the rear bathroom as that grade took almost 1 hr to make.
