Electric fan cooling fan

Thanks

this has been brought up a time or two.
i think the consensus was the fact that the electric fan large enough and strong enough to move the required air, simply does not exist or is very very expensive



now a hyd power fan/s yes for side mounts, but as far an electric for the rear mount..

There must be an issue with the radiator fins being clogged, water pump faulty, fan belt slipping, etc. if your MH is overheating. Sure an electric fan(puller) mounted outside the radiator might help, but repairing the cause is best.
How long since the cooling system was flushed?

The water pump vanes can be corroded to the point they cannot pump enough water volume to satisfy engine cooling requirements.It is uncommon but has happened.

Checking that yourself will involve time, effort, some replacement(what you spill) coolant, and the cost of a new gasket.
