Cooling Fan

I have a 1998 National Tradewinds with a 300 HP Cat Engine and Radiator in the rear. The temperature gage seems to always run high especially going up hills. Is it possible to add electronically controlled cooling fans to the back of the radiator?

If you have cleaned the radiator and CAC; should be done every 7,500 miles; and checked the water pump drive belt tension ; a couple of members report a loose belt as contributing to their overheating; and are sure you gauge is accurate by checking with an infrared sensor, and have replaced the thermostats; Cat recommends that they be replaced as a maintenance item, every few years, and checked the operation of the rad fan ; if it's equipped with a thermal hub.
Then adding an aux. electric fan may help , but , JMHO. that could be masking the real cause of the problem. and could be the high $$ solution.
