Truck running hot towing. Little help 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.
