Just to confirm what you stated. You state pushing air out. Does that mean the fan is blowing air out the front of the Radiator? If so, THAT is your problem. The air flow comes from the outside front of the Motorhome and is rammed thru by air at 60 mph. The Fan blade PULLS air from the outside in towards the radiator and over the engine block to the rear. If the Fan blade is going the wrong way, there is NO WAY you will get any air THRU the radiator to remove heat from the coolant. Especially at road speeds. The Fan clutch when the temp reaches its preset LOCKS the Fan to spin FASTER to help pull more air thru the radiator. Also, on a Chevy, one bad feature of the fan clutch is, when it does engage, it sounds like your Transmission just down shifted. Doug

Did that shop turn your fan blade around yet?
