Over heating towing 14k in 80 degree heat

I have been towing my 14k fiver for the last year and going away for the holiday this weekend it was running pretty hot dung mild climbs. It never got into the red but it was probably about 7/8th there. I also noticed itwasrunning hot ter than normal in town going to and from the freeway.

Knave checked coolant and oil, both look good. I have had a belt squeaking a bit lately sonot sure if that could be it.

Any ideas what it could be?

If youve had the latest update downloaded from ford, it closely monitors oil temps and other key signs of expensive costly time consuming repairs, so it makes the needle jump up to the red sooner.

Id have to run it and then plug ids in to see if its the coolant temp or oil temp pid and compare fan speed to ideal specs to see whats causing the gauge to climb. Belt squeak is probably a tensioner or idler.

if you could grab a tuner with a screen just to monitor oil temp, coolant temp, egts etc it would really tell you whats going on and during what driving condition
