Slipping and dropping rpm's

I have an 02' F350 w/ approx 116k. Have had several problems with the tranny overheating. Changed filter and fluid every time I saw the temp spike. I have tried to baby the tranny since I use the truck to trailer horses and other trailers.
My recent problem is that it slips really bad when shifting from park to drive or especially from park to reverse. The rpm's drop really low and it sounds like the truck is going to die. When under power it shifts ok. Bad torque converter?in need of rebuilt? Any help would be most appreciated, thanks.

I would say your torque converter is on its way out... But at that mileage, the cost of labor to do a rebuild vs a new converter wouldn't be too much. I would look into a rebuild if you can.
