Our W22 8.1L Intruder blew out a water hose after a long steep climb in New Mexico, in a hot August desert. Had to have it towed about 100 miles to Las Vegas, NM. Little shop there was owned by a family of gracious spanish Americans. My initial problem was a worn out fan clutch. They got us back on the road, but later I replaced the radiator cap and plugged a few leaks in another hose that had a pin hole rubbed into it from vibration. I finally stopped all leaks and it hasn't run hot again. The new clutch fan roars into full service usually when I am 'coasting' down a steep incline.

I can't imagine a W22 without electric cooling fans but I'm not totally familiar with these chassis after 2008.

EDIT. I did a little research and it looks like Workhorse eliminated the front mounted Electric Cooling fans in 2007 and later chassis. Your coach probably does not have electric cooling fans like pictured above.
You are absolutely correct as my December 2008 chassis does not have cooling fans pictured above. So I'm wondering what the later chassis has to replicate what the cooling fans are used for? Maybe a larger capacity radiator?
