Truck temp hot when pulling????

Hey guys,

I have a friend with a 95 f350 and his truck runs hot when he pulls his camper... Well we thought it might be his fan clutch so we replaced it and nada... So we asked a shop about radiator and he said they rarely fail or need replacing... Do the oil coolers on these truck ever fail or need cleaning? I have a 6.0 so I not familiar with the older 7.3..He don't have any gauges he is just going off the factory temp gauge.. Without pulling it shows below N and when pulling it gets past the AL.. Any advise ???

Thanks

Try swapping in a 6.0 fan. I would also check what the engine temp actually is, the dash gauges aren't all that accurate.

May have a bad temp sender, dirty radiator, bad water pump, dirty cooling system, worn out coolant.
