This happened to me pulling a small toy hauler with my '06. It left me stranded on the side of the road, on a grade, and it wouldn't restart. It was tuned and in the tow setting. I got it put back to stock and was able to drive it into the next town and fart around with it. After it was back to stock, it had poor power obviously. I was one edge the whole time driving it home. I traded it in very shortly after for a Dodge after I got passed by a Cummins pulling too cars on a car hauler.

The Cummins is long gone...but the point is there was something definitely wrong....bad head gaskets...who knows...a clog somewhere....or just the tune itself. Driving it back stock, I really took it easy on it...and it would still get warm. Definitely not normal for such a small trailer.
