Ladies and Gentlemen,
ALL is well and we are ready for our next expedition.........to Tenn. this Thursday.
I will post a photo in the photo section 'cause I can't figure how to do it here.
I believe the Summit rig is the ticket.
In our last test, RV loaded and pulling a 4 horse trailer the temps. never got above 194 degrees.
Yes........Florida is flat but it was really hot yesterday [ 92F. ].
The best news............the fan that FL blessed me with didn't SING at all.
We seem to be really quiet.

Somewhat disappointed in FL, They really MISSED the mark here.

Very interesting topic. I have lusted after a variable speed fan to replace my always on, one speed fan on my ISB 5.9, but this thread and one on rv.net that I cited makes me think I am not that bad off. A true temperature controlled fan would be ideal but some of the implementations are poor to say the least.

Captain Cook, what is the final configuration you are going to have? Will you have the two electric fans and a Horton clutch fan? BTW congratulations on getting this resolved. I know that it is tedious going through Freightliner, Cummins, and various OEMs and it can be frustrating. The good thing is that all of these companies will come through for you if you persist.

I posted 2 photos today.........Damon Tuscany aux. fans.
I chose to run a manual switch from the dash, just in case. The alum. angle is 1 1/2" by 1/4" thick, all connections are bolted with lock washers and Loc-tite on the threads.
When coach is switched off the fans run for 2 - 3 minutes just to cool everything off.
Temperature probe was installed just after these photos were taken; it's mounted high on the right [ just below the Hyd. tank ].

So far the results are Fan-tastic.

Jim and Jay,
Hey, I'm REALLY new at all this.
I posted them with a subject ....."damon Tuscany Aux. Fans 001 & 002.
Thanks for the help Jay.
I can suggest an installer in Central Florida.
So far the FIX works very well.
Yesterday, temps never got over 192 Degrees [ and it was one of those 94.....feels like 102 degrees ].

A very clean and simple install Capt, . If it weren't for my direct drive fan I'd be doing this application myself. I just can't see the $2000+ to change out a fan system that has been working well for me.
