In the heat the genny would help the main engine keep cool and in the cold the gen would help keep the main engine warm (especially when parked not running) visa versa. For electric fans it would also make the genny fan run less in average temps with the main engine rad doing most of the cooling. On my coach this will be a very simple thing to try.
My genny rad is right up front with a grill and the fan runs directly off the engine, no electrics. Should help my engine temps in the hills. Any thoughts?
I have seen this done,on Birds and converted coachs.
Seemed to work fine.

Robert, I would sure like to help you but I don't have a clue of where your leak is. If you have a smart phone you could send it to me that way and I would post it for you. we want to get you an answer.
