246 eot!! help

Hi guys, new here,, thought id start out with another eot/ect right off the bat! So my '03 F350 was in for the full ball of wax, went with a local diesel shop that has taken on the 6.0 problems but does them really cheap and cuts a few corners like they weld the egr cooler, dont flush anything, and leave oil all over every thing! you get what you pay for. I did everything possible while they had it open, hpop, oil cooler, pcp,,,,,etc,,, after a week outta there I bought an edge cs evo (not for the tuning) I noticed running around town here being 40* I started seeing 186ect/194 eot looked great, get on the freeway and 190ect/212eot, not really worried i guess, now spring is here (only a month from leaving shop) I pull my bumper pull toyhauler out and head down flat level highway and its like 199ect/ 220------246eot while towing. I WANT A NEW COOLER AND COOLANT FILTER AND A PROPER FLUSH FROM THESE GUYS!!!!! they totally disagree and want to take 9 years to find something other than that,, they tried thermostat,, duh? Im not a mechanic but come on,,, am I wrong??? What else could it be?? So the coolant did reach like 218 at one point when that oil was at 246 so should they not be cooler? shoould they be closer to each other? they are promising me they installed a sinister unit.. Thanks guys,, sorry so long

While towing, your EOTs will rise higher than when cruising.... however your empty highway temps are cause for concern in themselves. 22 degrees difference is no good. One of two things happened.

The shop did not flush the fluid and the gunk in the cooling system quickly plugged your new cooler

The shop charged you for a new cooler but never actually replaced it.
