Is the fan on the back side of the radiator? That may be my issue because I never heard any fan engage.

I am not sure were the fan is located. I will have more information for you once I pick my motor home up from Freightliner this week.

Yes. It is behind the radiator if you are looking at it from the rear. I can hear mine spin up as I am going over mountains and temp comes up. It will spike then quickly cool off and you can hear the fan slow back down.

There appears to be two fans in this 2011 GMC Sierra. Can I assume one is for the radiator and the other for the transmission cooler as you are describing?

Typically the second fan is for when the a/c is on. When you turn on the a/c it should automatically engage one of the fans to keep some air movement through the condensor. It likely is on a mutlifunction circuit which would allow it to turn on under other circumstances as well. They could both possibly turn on with the a/c as well. There are many variations in which manufacturers utilze dual fans and their purposes for activating.
