So what are u all seein for engine temps pulling? I recently travelled approx. 250 miles to a rodeo over several 6% grade hills with my edge set at step 1 and 2, and was setting the buzzer off at 213 degrees. I know the pyrometer is not totally accurate but i crused around 60-65 mph with approx. 8300 lbs. on a bumper pull. Didn't think I would see the engine temp alarm go off.....?

Mine went just a tick over 200 the other day. We've been anywhere from 96 to 105.

Mine is 189 while idling in a parking lot, its 103 outside. 210 is the hottest it got today, while outside temp was at 108 or higher, this could have been driving, I wasn't watching it though, just looking at my records(just got the edge put in today).

My Edge gave me an alarm on the way home, engine temp go to 211. I was going up a pretty big hill, but the truck was empty. At what temp should I be worrying about?

When I was towing on a hilly logging road the alarm went off when the temp hit 211 degrees. I bumped the alarm setting up a few more degrees and I have not heard the alarm since. I do not believe that sustained 215 degree engine temperatures will hurt this engine.
