Question Towing Question

We have a new to us 2005 KSCA on a workhorse chassis. We are taking a trip to Texas soon and will be towing a 5,000 lb truck. It will be in lower Michigan, Ind, Ill, and Akransas. Should I use the OD or lock it out? I don't anticipate any long hills. We did have a 2006 KSDP and it didn't know a hill. We only do one major trip a year and could no longer justify the expense of the diesel. Thanks. Russ Bennett. This will be the only trip towing the truck. We will have something lighter next time.

Use OD when you can. If you feel that the engine is lugging or the transmission starts searching, lock it out.

KSDP, Put the transmission in drive and don't worry about it. That Allison and 8.1L engine will take care of itself. Enjoy!

Leave your Grade Brake turned on by the way! It'll help!
