I want to install a trans cooler and wondering which one? ill be pulling this camper 200-250miles. 1-2 times a year.
I also would like to know how I should pull this? drive with tow haul or in 3rd gear with tow haul on?
my normal trans temp is 160-180 degrees what should it stay under when towing?
A few times year you'll be fine. If there's any issues, just drive slower.
With my 2002 Chevy, I turn on tow/haul and put in 3rd to prevent frequent downshifting even on flat ground. Tow/haul basically prevents an upshift until higher rpms even at partial throttle openings.
