Truck running hot. Little input please

So this weekend we took out the new trailer for the first time.

We went 47 miles. First 10 or so flat stop and go threw town. Then we got to the hills. Same area I drive to go to work.

Normally I see Ect at 190-192 and Eot of around 180-188 we driving to and from work.

With the trailer (5200 lbs) I was seeing Ect at 216-218. At one point both Ect and Eot reached 226. Only for a minute or a bit less. The truck did puke a little.
I recently replaced the degas tank, cap and thermostats all with Oem when I did my oil cooler.


After we got to the camp site we unhooked and the truck sat for about 20 minutes until I realized I forgot my water hose. Idiot. So went to get a hose. Truck would warm up to Ect 216 then drop to 208, then warm up to about 216 again. Eot stayed around 188.

I'm thinking water pump but looking for any ideas you guys might have.

Before you commit to a water pump there's a 188 degree thermostat for the 6.0. Could try that first.

I'd check the thermostat first. You should replace it everytime you do a water pump anyway... So it only makes sense to try that first. Good time to change the coolant to. What's the factory thermostat, 192*? Not sure why you would need to lower the thermostats number... If anything most guys raise the number because diesels run more efficiently when their hotter. I wouldn't recommend 188* thermostat but that's my opinion... Good luck. If it ends up being the water pump look into the BPD water pump, it's worth it in the long run if need to buy 2 water pumps thru-out the entire life of the truck. Which is a possibility if you plan on keep the truck for a long time.

I ordered the BPD water pump. I want to replace it anyways. This gives me an excuse. Haha
I didn't have a check engine light but I did end up pulling a code. P0528 for the fan circuit. 2nd time I've had that code. Ordered th HD Oem can clutch also. So I have a little prodject for the weekend.

I'll probably do the thermostat also even though it's only 2 months old.

I'd go with the non autozone brand of t-stat when you purchase yours. Not saying you did in the first place. Oh and the 188* doesn't exist anymore I just looked for it. I doubt theres really any benefit/harm that could be done with the 188* t-stat anyway since your fan is set from the factory. The 188* would just make it take a little longer to reach the high end of the tolerance.
