Electric Automotive fan on a diesel pusher

I'm thinking about installing a electric 12volt automotive radiator fan/fans on my diesel pusher to supplement the use of the hydraulic driven fan that's installed, I'm still researching this idea, can this be done, 400 hp cat engine side radiator, the fan/fans would have to be configured as air pushers. Any ideas would be appreciated. CC inspire #51651 Thanks

I don't see where you could put one to start with and are you having heating problems. Are you going by the gauges on the dash if so they may be off by 15 to 20deg. I have the Silverleaf and see what the real temps are running.
Looks like we may have the same coach.

At least once a month on here there is a problem with a diesel overheating.

Almost every time it turns out to be a dirty radiator causing the problem.

Are you having over heating problems and, if so, have you cleaned the radiator REALLY good?

Apparently it takes some effort on some of these rigs to clean it correctly.

I use to have a heating problem, but not any more, this is why I posted this idea of installing elec. fan/fans. I have installed a switch to turn my radiator hydro fan on and off when needed, this is what gave me the idea to do this. As far as the same coach I think you are right 06 inspire 360 Genoa Cat 400 hp #51651 Samsung 197 steel/ copper replacement radiator 2012 Terrain, I'm not sure about the silverleaf 330 magnum etc. 65.000 miles still running strong. Full Timer... Gota Go Thanks for the reply.

Not to hijack but inserting a question that fits.

Ours has side radiator for engine with ac condenser and generator radiator in the front with electric fans.

Side note is the fun when you pop the hood and point to genny and state it is the engine...

Anywho...One of the fans are dead and looking for source for new ones that do not cost an arm.

So watching this thread for possibilities

Fan Replacement

Good morning TQ60, I'm not sure of the replacement size of the fan your looking for, I did a lot of looking on amozon.com they had just a bout every size and price rang available, I did not see any squirrel cage fans "if" this is what you're looking for. Good luck..
