Have you checked the temperature variance since you did the clean out? I am curious just what the average difference should be between the inlet & outlet. (I know there are a lot of other variables there too.)

Since I'm having some temp issues I'm tying to diagnose where I should be spending my time.

It was a group effort for sure. I was a bit overwhelmed when I first started looking at everything but I just took my time and the more I looked the more everything started to click. Just finding everything and understanding how the systems work does take some time if you purchase one of these from someone who doesn't show you a single thing on them. This is the first week I have spent in the coach and I have been very impressed to say the least. It's going to be real nice by January if I don't have any major hang ups.

From everything I read on the forum most of you aren't afraid to dig into some pretty serious jobs. I turned 30 over the weekend but I guess I still fall into the young category haha. Thanks for the positive vibes.

Tim, I have not checked the variance yet but next week I need to go find LP and I will have my tools with me then. I will check it and report back but maybe someone is on the road and will see this and post a reply to your question so we can both see what another coach is running.

Photos are cool so here are a few.
This is my makeshift radiator flush system that I tried to use. If I had used something that would break down the rust it think it would have worked.

Water pump shaft play. The DD tech I spoke with at W.W. Williams said he thought the reading I had was normal.

This next set was the transmission cooler. If I had rodded the radiator and not cleaned the cooler I would still be having issues. Best to clean it all while you have it apart. I just back washed and hit each rod with compressed air. the photo of the cooler is after I got most of the trash out but you can see by the photos that there was a fair amount of rust. The stuff on the rag is just what I pulled out with the magnet...There was more that was blown out with the water and air that I did not capture.
