Angry 2000 Magna dust blower

Does anyone have a solution to the amount of dust that a 2000 Magna kicks up?

jstreiff, welcome to iRV2.com and to the Country Coach Owners forum. We are glad to have you join us here and am sure you will enjoy the website.
All coaches with side radiators and the bigger they are the more dust they kick up. Only suggestion is to drive when ground it wet to prevent dust.

If you have time to shut down the engine for 20 minutes or so, before driving off road, you can reduce the amount of dust kicked up by the fan.

If it is dust from the side of the road, we all do that.

Dust

On my 1999 Allure,the fan sticks out of the fan housing a little and blows right down to the ground. I had a 5 or 6 inch piece of metal attached all along the bottom of the fan housing to deflect the fan air. Hardly any down air flow now and little dust blowing. It was unbelieveable how much dust was blown before. When I entered a campground with gravel roads, campers scattered as I created a dust storm.

Just a few lines on the dust storm. Be prepared to accept it or fine a way around it. As one person mentioned, there is a fan shroud plate kit that CC was providng at one time to move the airflow from the fan back toward the engine instead of down toward the ground. However, this is oly putting a bandaide on the the real problem.

Most Country Coaches have a 3-speed hydraulic motor fan and it is controlled by a fan control module mounted on the side of the fan shroud. There are several things that influence the fan speed. Whenever the OTR AC has been selected to MAX COOL, the fan will automatically go to high speed. If there is an overtemp condition indicated by coolant and/or air temp sensors or their failure, the fan goes to high speed. If there is a failure in one of the relays in the circuits, the fan goes to high speed. If there is a bad electrical connection, the fan goes to high speed. A bad control module, the fan goes to high speed. If any of the sensors or control module have been disconnected, the fan goes to high speed.

It all boils down that the system is going to protect the engine from overtemp. Look for all the items that feed the fan control module.
