Running too warm or normal?

Dodge Ram Van - DodgeForum.com - dodgeforum.com
1997 Roadtrek on Dodge 2500 chassis with 318ci engine, 140K miles. Drove down from NJ to FL. Engine temp usually runs around 198 degrees. Noticed that when we entered Georgia and the temps were in the 80s to 90s, that the engine temp ran a little warmer. When we got to Florida after a six hour run, the engine temp seemed to climb to 200-204. When pushed, the temp would climb then cool back down to 200-204. Is this normal or should I begin having the cooling system checked. In my mind, cooler operating temperatures translate to longer life and that is my goal. Thanks for your input.
