Default 2500 5.9 gas lacking towing power question

Just got a 28' fifth wheel, while pulling it home my 2002 Dodge Ram 2500 5.9l gas 5 speed manual really lacked in power and got smelling pretty hot after 15 miles and the last mile was uphilll to my house. What can I install to help out the engine and increase power?

Nick, a big Hello and a Warm Carolina Welcome! I'm sure you'll soon be enjoying all the best RAM ForumZ haZ to offer.

How about giving us a little more information on your truck? Mileage, mods, tire size, original rear end gearing and weight of the 28' Travel Tralier?

I don't know an exact answer but after looking at many posts here someone who has some broader experience will chime in.

While waiting on the answer how about dropping by the Newbie Checkin with a photo or two and introducing yourself.
