Towed for the first time,have problem! ! ! HELP

well yesterday i towed for the first time with my 97 350 dually psd automatic. mind you it is all stock, and i was towing about 11k. It towed great all until i was about to merge onto the highway, and it has done this twice before on open roads. It seems like in third gear as i am under full load trying to merge, at about 2800 rpms or so the truck must like defuel or something, it slowly misses.. almost like a limiter or something..

any ideas on what it might be?

if i let off and it shifts, it is fine but it is almost like it struggles to get to like 75mph..

any info would be great..

is the wastegeate spring weak?

Well by no means am I tech, (had to premise with that), but I had a truck that did that and it was my TC. Hoping in your case it's something else!
