Van, I saw on another forum that you were talking about ways to monitor your engine compartment. Our own Jim Shepherd, the RV Safety Man, has quite a few products for monitoring the heat in your compartments. Check out his site.

Jim is around quite often. He may be coming out here soon. If he does, you should come over.

Dale, thanks for the mention of the system.

The tread on MAK might be worth a glance: http://www.busconversions.com/bbs/index ... ic=10801.0

I just posted the following comment:

I have an air clutch on my radiator fan (controlled by me with a switch on the dash). I leave the fan off for warm up, or shut it off if I am in a dusty area (Quartzsite for example :D ). Our system has an owner settable first level "early warning" alarm. I have mine set for 200 degrees for the engine compartment. If I forget to turn on the fan once I am on the road, the early warning alarm goes off before the engine gets to 205 (not very high for a Series 60).

I think Jack caught a cooling problem with his generator with the same set-up.

I do not want to suggest that the system will "detect" major engine problems before they occur (was not designed for that purpose), but it is one more piece of information and has helped me avoid a "stupid operator" caused problem (several times - slow learner? :o ).
