Thanks!

Lots of RV'ers at CNO. Last RV that had intermittent high oil temperature that I helped troubleshoot landed at CNO. Tried a Veritherm from one of the RVs at CNO and found out that the Veritherm was bad in the high oil temp RV. We actually heated the Veritherm borrowed from a CNO RV and the one that was not working and found that the RV with oil temp issues had a Veritherm did NOT expand (get longer) as the oil got hot.
