Cant run the fan mod on the upfitter cause your not supplying power to the fan your supplying a ground believe it or not. And ya just search fan mod, Super easy to do. Kinda surprised me how easy...almost felt cheated!
And ya if your peggin the factory guage you got a problem. You might also look into changing out the thermostat. Another easy thing to do.
I haven't looked into how the upfitter switches work, but why cant they be used as a normal toggle switch (capable of making/breaking a ground)?
Even though my "normal" ECTs are around 188-192, I think that I'll put a new t-stat in just to be sure that isn't my issue. I'd assume t-stats are relatively inexpensive...
one thought on atlas 40 tune... it mentions some warning about higher egts and you'll have higher egts towing normally. I would just get your ficam repaird to stock lvls then get your (possibly more serious and costly) coolant issue checked. Best bet would be to check your eot/ect while towing and see how close they get. if they get high like eot in 230s-250-s some clogging could be reason. the coolant puking could be caused by....
1/ coolant lvl to high,
3/ bad cap
check your coolant psi. you can do it yourself fairly easy, or have a diesel guy do it for best results. just my opinion though to help your truck.
good luck man.
maybe I'll just keep the stock ficm tune for now, i suppose i could always send it back to him for the Atlas 40 some other time if i feel that it is necessary. i do have plans on doing a 4" turbo-back exhaust and the EGT add-on for the Edge Insight CTS before too long, which might make the Atlas 40 do-able.
i will hook on to the camper and see where my ECTs and EOTs are at
i dont think my coolant level is too high, but i'll make sure that it isnt.
i hope like heck that it isnt my head gaskets, but that sure has been a thought of mine. i'd really like to get away with the "one at a time" ARP stud replacement, but i cant do that if i have a blown head gasket!
i will get a new OEM Ford degas cap when i get my t-stat.
i will go to the local hardware store and make my own coolant pressure tester and see how that goes.

Turns out it had some generic cap on it causing the problems

it sure would be nice if that was my problem!
