AceofExcursions is starting off with a positive reputation.
Could one of you nice people just give me a quick insight on how exactly a heating system works? I think I would understand a lot better if I just new which parts were which - nothing fancy, just like a paragraph

Hot water from the engine is circulated through hoses inside the cab into a heat exchanger where a fan blows air across it and into the truck.

I'll bet that heater core needs a flush,and if thats the case so does the whole cooling system

Did anyone notice in the video that at about 1:50 where it talks about thermostat operation the operating temperature is listed as being typically 200-250C??? That's one HOT vehicle--LOL.
