2006 Beaver Coach Trans Temp Gauge issues

I have a 2006 Beaver Monterey Laguna IV coach. On a recent trip I noticed my Transmission Temp Gauge only moving up about 25% (1/4) on the gauge after driving over 100 miles. Usually in the past it has ran at about mid/center (50%) of the gauge. About the same as the Water Temp gauge. It has always taken about 10 miles for the Trans Temp to warm up to its normal operating temperature. The weather was in the upper 40s/50s. I haven't tracked down the sensor on the transmission yet to check its connection, etc. Any suggestions. Thanks

My transmission runs considerably cooler than my engine, especially in cooler weather. My Cummins runs somewhere around 190 degrees and the Allison temp usually hoovers around 175, but goes as low as 140 on flat and level terrain.

Trans temp gauge issue

Yes it has the Aladdin, I will check to see what its showing on the Trans Temp reading for comparison purposes. I forgot to mention that I do have the Cat Engine (400hp) C9 (2005) Thanks

The only real temps I see are from my Silverleaf because the dash gauges are way off, maybe up to 15 deg on the trans and 10 lbs on the motor. I started see motor temps going up to 210 last year it was 204 then my fan would come on then down to 196 and the trans would follow.
Had the wax valve installed what a difference. Now my motor run up to 194 deg then down to 170 deg and the trans runs 170 deg all the time now, plus when the fan come on you can hear it, worth every penny
