The primary job of a thermostat is to keep the engine running as close as possible to it's specified temps whether it is a 180, 180 or 203....certainly NO LESS and hopefully NO MORE...PERIOD. If it runs higher than the specified temps then you have a PROBLEM....PROBLEM... PROBLEM...GET IT????????????????? I don't care if your towing or driving through the hotest desert on the should NOT OVER HEAT. Ask TCI their opinion about the Ram factory trans cooler to get a professional opinion. They're going to tell you that it's not enough for extreme duty and recommend an aftermarket cooler and maybe even an aluminum finned cooling pan for extra measurements. It's possible that there is air in his cooling system but highly unlikely with a new truck...I could be wrong. None the less, towing 7900 lbs is a no no without an extra stand alone trans cooler...IMO of course. Install one and it will most likely solve the problem.
