Cooling fan... am I deaf?
« on: April 10, 2019, 03:47:57 PM »
I did not want to highjack the “Cooling fan always running” thread so... how does anyone hear the radiator fan running when it is all the way in the back next to the motor? I have never heard it run. I am sure mine works because it usually hovers around 189 and never goes above 195 even on long upgrades.

Fred, I'm with you; With the Clattapillar running, who can hear the fan? I never have.

Same here - from inside the coach.
But if you go the back of coach with engine running (and cool), it should not sound like you have a jet engine back there.  ;)

I could hear the fan on the C13 if it would go to high speed but in normal operation not so much.
