Mark, when cleaning the radiator I found using a garden sprayer with Awesome Cleaner I was able to get the cleaner deeper into the radiator than using the spray bottle it comes with. I soak it down from both sides, have a 1/2 a beer while it works then with just the a high pressure hose nozzle spray it down from the back side to blow the dirt out. If really dirty, repeat, you should still have 1/2 a beer left.

I've had an ISB in my 2014, saw 201-203 when pulling hard and towing, wouldn't worry too much.

I now have an ISX and was surprised at how much hotter it runs. At the time I called Cummins to ask about it...they said it was normal. It runs 205 all the time and gets into the 210 range when it is pulling hard in the heat.

Thanks Chuck - been using that Awesome cleaner since you posted it a few years ago. Works on many things around the Motor Home - spray on, wait for that half of beer, then rinse off. Will get the radiator when I get back home.

That is some amazing stuff for a dollar. A full timer in Colorado introduced me to it, now I use it on everything. DW even uses as a laundry pre-spot treatment.

I waited till mid afternoon and it was in the low 90's, I haven't seen temps like till the past 6 months. The last test drive was without the truck behind and it hit 201.
