Stopped at a truck stop on my way out of town and happened to over hear an elderly couple in the line in front of me talking. The man was frustrated and telling his wife (?) that he has been hauling there other boat with his truck and had never had a problem with the truck over-heating. He continues that here he is with a lighter pontoon boat and he must pull over every twenty miles to cool the truck down. He was really flustered.
They left out of the shop and I soon bought made my purchases and headed out to my van.
As I was pulling out and around the parking lot to get back out onto the freeway. I noticed the same couple drive by me with the pontoon boat attached. I ended up behind them on the on-ramp and as things cleared I went to pass them. In my mirror I was had to look twice in utter surprise!!! The guy apparently had to run an "Oversize Load" banners on his truck for the width of the pontoon boat. He draped it right across his radiator! I hope this guy is not an HVAC Tech! Definitely no clue about the importance of airflow across a coil-his radiator to be exact!!!
