I pulled my 5er home yesterday
the sticker in it says 9700 lbs empty. I had my edge set to level 1 towing. The truck seemed to handle it ok and I never really got over 1000 on the egts unless I was really pushing it.
My truck seemed to do ok when I got up to speed but really seemed to feel it taking off from a stop.
when moving, I was in od and it never really hunted for a gear till we got down to around 50 to 55 mph. otherwise it was in od and happy.
The truck seemed happiest around 2k rpm and held in OD just fine.
so is it better to pull at 2k rpm (65 to 67 ish) or should I get the RPMs up or down?
Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good
