I have a Ram 2500 diesel and I had trouble with overheating, especially since I pull a fifth-wheel. I even had a heavy equipment supervisor tell me I probably needed the radiator boiled out! Well, come to find out the radiator was clogged with bugs, i.e. insects! Guy took over an hour blowing the radiator with air and have had no overheating since!
