No you don't have to have oil or water mixing. Sometime it happens, What happens here is that the pressure builds up and blows/relieves it into the cooling passages.

Just curious….what size tires are on your truck? What gear does your truck have and what size 5th wheel are we talking….do you know the weight?

The reason I ask is with aprox. 17,000 GVW....maybe a little more, with 285/75/16 and a 3.73 gear would cause some strain with towing. I don't know if your trip was on flat grade or hill grade. Most folks who tow do so with the 4.10. 4.30 or even lower...

Not to say this is what is wrong with your truck...more so that I was just curious. This site has a lot of folks with a lot of knowledge to help you....

I hope what ever is wrong with your truck...you can get it fixed.
