Disallow, what is the loaded weight of your travel trailer? That unit looks huge! What transmission temperatures do you usually see when towing? I've been looking at 20-21 foot toyhaulers and travel trailers.

I agree that too low is not good either. The fluid will not have the proper viscosity. I've read that 150 should be the ideal minimum operating temperature.

I try to keep my transmission temperature under 180. Sometimes its unavoidable for it to climb to 200 or even 210 for a short period of time but I would not operate mine up to 250. 250 is the top range of my transmission gauge.

Deermjd, No issues with the Autometer gauge in the 5 years i've had it. I did have to replace the lightbulb for the back light once. Do you do any towing with your truck? I think the temp gauge is most useful while towing and mountain driving. My transmission temperature can easily get to 210 if I'm...

I'm very pleased with the results. I drove approximately 25 miles of highway and city. I immediately noticed A LOT MORE cooling and much lower temperatures on my gauge. It was 68 degrees out. In the past I would see 160 degrees on my gauge for the type of driving I did (50/50 highway and city). Now ...

This factory piece was removed. It was used to connect the factory cooler to the transmission return hardline. Don't need it anymore.

The hose and clamp at the top is the output of the factory transmission cooler. Its at the bottom of the factory cooler. I ran this to my 2nd cooler. The hose and clamp at the bottom is the transmission return hardline. Connect the output of your newly installed transmission cooler to this line. It ...

This is what it looks like with the grill on. You can see it gets more airflow (more exposed) than than the stock cooler because its mounted higher. There is less blockage from the bumper and vertical grill bar. I will see how the second cooler performs this summer. Then decide if I want to install ...

Dawgn86, the fan is easy to install. Four zip ties go through the cooler to hold it in place. The following link has info on where to get it and the specifications.

2nd transmission cooler installed

I finally added a second cooler. It's a B&M Supercooler model number 70268. It's mounted but I haven't connected the lines yet. I've been wanting to do this for some time now. The transmission fan I added a couple years ago helped a lot but wasn't enough. I got tired of "driving by the transmission ...
