Swapped out my degas bottle for a nice new one that I could see the level through about 2 years ago.
Well, that one sprung a leak. Stupid moment here, degas had a pinhole leak that was shooting on to the skinny hose that runs in front of degas bottle. I thought the hose had a leak, so replaced it... Turns out the degas was the leak... Anyhow, replaced with a Dorman bottle.

I only drove the truck about 3 miles after fix, got heat from vents, but I don't see any coolant flow into the degas bottle. Coolant level shoes full.
I could have sworn that I ALWAYS had flow into that bottle when truck was running. Am I wrong? Or do I have air in the system.

I feel like when I replaced water pump a few years back, I had a hard time getting air out of system.

Any ideas?

As long as it doesn't overheat, I'd give it some time. I assume you verified that there was a hole for the flow from the small hose.

Thanks,
No overheating, i now see a small trickle of coolant going into degas.

Truck has been sitting for a few days. So of course a caliper is hanging up....
