Check engine light and flashing overdrive on shifter

Check engine light and flashing overdrive light 97PS and only seems to do it when towing a trailer. Just the truck with a load of wood on it and no problem. Could this be a tourque converter problem? On a John Wood Tranny with about 250K on the tranny. Am going to get codes read this weekend.

2002 f350 lariat crew cab short bed 7.3 diesel 6.0 tranny cooler column mounted tranny temp gage 248K miles. 1997 f250 XLT 8ft flatbed John Wood Tranny, 2 tranny coolers and gauge, 461K miles.
