What is normal when towing? Does anyone know for sure? I towed 80 degree weather a 3000 lbs trailer 125 miles and my radiator temp on the in dash said 220 and oil temp at 220. I was thinking WHAT IF I was pulling my max pulling capacity would I be able to do it with this truck. To me that is too high for a light load. My truck just turned 11,500 on the odometer and its like new in and out so now radiator issue or clogging issues for sure. I was going to call the dealer and ask them if they knew the facts on temp while towing. I was thinking about doing the 180 thermostat and go from there but I have the lifetime max agreement so I don't want to effect that.
