Default Tow/haul mode problem

Hi There my 2010 dodge ram big horn seemed to be slipping/shuddering at 4300 rpm up hill in tow haul mode while towing my 3200lb jayco featherlight.I thought it was an anomally and slowed down then sped up again only to have it happen in the exact same rpm under load.I shut off the tow haul mode and it ran through to 5000rpm without a problem.Is this indication of the torque converter acting up or is it the computer shifting the tranny incorrectly.I wanted to dismiss the torque converter only because it didnt occur in normal mode.Any help would be appreciated.Its going into the dealership monday and I am takign them for a drive with the traile rin tow to show them the problem.

Have them run it with a scan tool so they can watch current gear, target gear, and Torque Converter Clutch (TCC) state. That way they can see what the PCM is commanding the trans and converter to do.
