well after reading through this entire thread ive decided to chime in and possibly help out. Im in the same boat as the OP with the operating temps when towing a 6500 lbs travel trailer. I have a 2013 sport with the towing package (heavy duty engine cooler/trans cooler) and my temps went up to about 220-240 (coolant) and 230-250 (oil temps), tranny temps never saw higher that 180-190.

Im going on another trip middle of next week and plan to install a 180 tstat before i leave. I will report back after the trip to see if it helps!!
