Which program to run

I have just installed the H&S XRT Pro programmer , S&B cold air intake , and Diamond Eye DPF/Cat delete and love it. The question is , which program do I 'run to pull my 37' fifth wheel with. I have mild , wild and hot to choose from. Can anyone say any of them are safe to tow with or should I just go with the no power upgrade option.

Thats hard to answer because the best towing tunes need Boost-psi and egt monitoring . Without monitoring, yes its probably best to run the Mild tune , it will be safe But youll lose some MPG gains that you would have with the Higher power tunes.

towing with xrt pro

I just installed the same package as bade--exactly--and was wondering the same thing. Maybe someone from H&S could chime in with some accurate info. The heaviest I pull is 5k lbs. 2008 6.4 27000 miles.

For heavy loads I would start off on the mild or no power and just watch the gauges. If everything seems to be staying in check you could increase power level if you wanted. There is no set "tow tune" with the H&S. Thats just my opinion, its up to you how you want it to run.

I tow in the mild or stock setting. I have gauges though. Without gauges, I'd probably just leave it stock as it can't hurt to be a little extra careful.
