I tow a 12Klb 5th Wheel.
I've towed on Stage 2 most of the time with mine and it's been fine. This last trip, I towed on Stage 3 (I got lazy and didn't reprogram before the trip). It did just fine. I do have gauges so I can watch the EGTs and Tranny temps. (I also have a 6.0L Tranny cooler up front, which helps keep tranny temps down) Going up a couple of hills, I got up to about 1200* on the EGT gauge, I backed off ever-so-slightly to drop 'em down to about 1050-1100*. The truck kept pulling and I made it up and over just fine.
I haven't decided whether I'll do it again, but for this trip, at least, it was fine.
You can run 1200 deg all day long with a pre-turbo probe.
