Just went to Idaho and back pulling my 28 foot goosneck horse trailer with three horses and quad. On the way back a buddy was following me and told me he had to slow down on big hills (he has a big gooseneck living quarter horse trailer).

On Highway 6 in Nevada I noticed my temp guage increasing as we went up. I slowed, turned off ac and turned on heater. Oil temp was 242. It was 89 degrees outside.

Is this normal or do I need to look at something?

Thanks,
Terry

That's to be expected, it's normal.

Don't worry the truck will let you know if it gets to hot. I wouldn't worry about those temps. I do however run full synthetic just because the oil gets so hot when I tow.
As for you8r buddy he needs a Ford!!! then he would have to slow down because the truck goes to fast.

Thanks for the feedback.
My buddy does have a 2016 Powerstoke also.
