    Annual trip to Daytona Beach is Tuesday June the 14th.
    This year we rented a bumper pull camper with bunk beds an a super slide out.
    Weight is over 7K.
    I figured installing an extra transmission cooler with manual fan would be a good idea on the F250.

    Started with the Imperial Econ-o-Kool 8 pass I bought for 20% off the retail price.
    Total with tax was $42.67.

    Found a 10 inch fan on Amazon for $26 shipped 80 watts 6.6 amps.

    Had some thick shipping foam I cut down to sandwich between the cooler and fan better than the peel and stick stuff that comes with the cooler.

    Found the best location after mock ups was behind the license plate opening but had to remove the aftermarket led fog lights from the stock locations.

    Made a bracket to hang the fan and cooler from out of aluminum flat stock 2" x 1/8"
    X 32" long.

    Made oblong holes so I had some adjustability for
    the 16" on center.
    Made same measured oblong hole on the other end.
    32" allowed me to use two bumper bracket to bumper bolts that face the inside of the bumper with a 13 mm head and 3/8" shank.

    Rockauto had the transmission filter Motorcraft FT114 and Raybestos inline magnetic particulate.

    Had to go and get another set of switches from Academy Sports for the F250 cause I misplaced the ones I had.

    Finished pulling wires through the clutch slave cylinder hole in the firewall where all my other accessories are run.

    Hopefully finish this in the am tmrw.
    Install this grommet where I was using the factory seal off plug with a drilled hole and RTV silicone, loom the wires inside the cab and the mount swtches.

    Transmission temp only went up to 205 once during the hottest part of the trip when we went through Orange Park outside of Jacksonville FL.
    Had to cut the fan on twice due to traffic back ups south of Atlanta and outside of Jacksonville.
