Check the temp on your Silver Leaf system. Make sure it says the same thing or close to what your analog gauge says

I have the SilverLeaf and my temps are higher by 10 to 15degs on the analog gauges. My coolant fan comes on at 204degs and turns off at 196deg and the trans runs about the same.

I don't have a Silverleaf installed on this rig so I am trusting the analog gages. Still waiting to hear from the dealer as to what the problem was. I suspect it was an installer issue as others have mentioned. Thanks to all for your input and concern. That's the beauty of this forum!

Just something to think about down the road if you have a laptop this is the way to go for a great set of gauges plus it will do a lot more like spreadsheet, cost around $375

c9 overheating

The c9 has two thermostats that are prone to failure. usually just one so the cooling is reduced. Fairly easy repair.

Thanks 2 stroker. I have looked at that and may go that route. Question: how is the laptop connected to the diagnostics? Is there a USB cable that sticks out of the dash? Where is a safe place to place the laptop while you are driving - on the dash?

Thanks Rod. Would failure of one thermostat cause the temperatures to rise on both the engine and transmission though?

Yes, both share same air in area of rad.

If engine gets hot then heat transferes

Yes it is connected to the laptop by USB cable and the dash is a good spot for it. I have the SilverLeaf 330

$1200+ works well but if I had it to do over I would have went with the other way.
In my 06 Ford I have the Edge Insight CTS works the same as the 330, I like numbers in real time.
Here are some post with pics, hope it helps.

No point in throwing money at exotic instrumentation which will only confirm what you can plainly see with standard instrumentation - and which for 99.9% of the time there isn't a fault to indicate.

What they do is break and wont open or break and sit halfway open. I broke one in texas and we were able to go to coltan truck in california and had it replaced. I needed to keep my foot out of it to keep temps down. Also note if you sit and idle and in gear you will see trans temps climb.

Mystery solved

Just got the coach back from the dealer and the over temps were caused by a low coolant level. The dealer suggested that there was a bubble in the system and caused the cooling system to be underfilled.
