Transmission Temp getting hot

So before i had my trans rebuilt my trans would never go over 180 degrees no matter what i was towing so now that my trans was rebuilt and they put all the good stuff with a triple disk TC shift kit and huge pan. Towing my 10k trailer the temp will reach 220-230 does anyone have any idea why it could get hot i have the +7 quart pan with a trans cooler w/fan inline with stock cooler truck it 2002 F350 7.3 4x4

That's way too hot. If its not slipping, id say your tc is building heat. I had mine built and it was running 190 empty around town. Guy told me he'd warranty it if it broke but wasn't going to just replace parts....I said, ill take that challenge....I sled pulled it and 4wd boosted launched it on the street a few times and it blew the tc and destroyed the whole unit. He picked it up by wrecker abd built a new one.

Id go back to the builder.....
