EGTs when towing????

OK I am moving (transferring) to Maine tomorrow, and it will be the first long distance tow with my truck. I am pullin a 27 ft boat on a tandem axle trailer weight approx 6500-7000 lbs. What is the ok/normal EGTs for me to be CONSTANT at. I know during acceleration, they will get up there for a few secs, but what about constant temps. I just want to know how hard I can push it and not hurt anything. Thanks guys!!

loaded heavy, I'm at about 1000 at 75, and it gets up to 1300 when on it hard up a hill. You shouldn't have any problem driving as hard (and fast) as you want

I agree, when I am pulling my 34ft. enclosed trailer, with my TS on 50 hp I see about 900 on the flats at 75mph to 1100 up the hills. You should have no problem at all.

Knew about not staying at 1250 and up for a period of time, just concerned about running at 900-1000 consistently. Thanks guys!! See ya on the other end of the east coast. Florida to Maine, go figure!!

You can tow all day long at just below 1250... do you want to? No because you're likely getting poor fuel mileage. That 7,000lbs IS NOT much at all. I towed that from MD down past Tampa Bay a few months ago. I forget what my EGT's were but even on long hills I didn't go above 1000 then again I never went over 70 mph except to pass a tractor trailer.

If you go thru Maryland (on 95 like I'm sure you will) and you have ANY problems don't hesitate to call!

443 553 9234.

I know of 2 other people that are along 95 too that might be able to help if something goes wrong!

If you've kept up to date w/ your maintainence then you should be FINE! You're doing what these things were MADE FOR!

I just changed my oil, and I would take off across country right now if I had to... that's how much trust I have in my truck. In the past 2 years it's only left me stranded once... it blew an o-ring which costs a few pennies to replace. My fault... I could have avoided it but I had to drive it until it died.

same here, Towed a 25 foot car hauler and a 95 crown vic a few months ago from south texas to OK, combined weight of 9000lbs and only hit 1100 once to pass some one on a hill. stayed at 850 most of the way, but texas is really flat so that makes a difference.
