Over heating

I recently had the oil cooler replaced..egr delete kit..oil change..and coolant flush..along with a new thermostat installed....i was hauling a 8,800lb camper from indiana to denver and just about half way there the ect guage went from normal to red and wouldnt come down...i pulled over and let it cool off..added some coolant and continued on....40 miles later it went straight to red..i pulled over and let it cool..changed the tstat...added coolant and took off again...10 mins later it went from normal straight to red and would not come down...called another driver to pick up the trailer....added coolant and drove back without any problems...radiator clogged..?? Bad water pump..??

This happened to me pulling a small toy hauler with my '06. It left me stranded on the side of the road, on a grade, and it wouldn't restart. It was tuned and in the tow setting. I got it put back to stock and was able to drive it into the next town and fart around with it. After it was back to stock, it had poor power obviously. I was one edge the whole time driving it home. I traded it in very shortly after for a Dodge after I got passed by a Cummins pulling too cars on a car hauler.

The Cummins is long gone...but the point is there was something definitely wrong....bad head gaskets...who knows...a clog somewhere....or just the tune itself. Driving it back stock, I really took it easy on it...and it would still get warm. Definitely not normal for such a small trailer.
