At what temp should the torqueshift operate?

Large trans temp fluctuations show up on my Edge Insight. I'm seeing temps anywhere from the 150's to the 190's depending on outside temps and how hard I'm working my right foot. Don't really pull anything over 4500 lbs and it's not gotten over 90 degrees outside yet, but I'd like to know what the recommended trans temp parameters should be.

Your pulling 3 times more and running 3 to 5 degrees cooler, doesn't that seem off?

At what temp should I start being concerned?

Fords long term upper limit is 250F. You have no worries.

My typical temp when not towing is right around 160-165. I don't tow anything real heavy but I have seen 200 with a light 2k on back roads through the hills of Pa.

At what temp do I need to start being concerned and maybe trying to get it cooled down some?

Since the LONG TERM upper limit is 250F, I think that might be a good area to start to let it cool some. It still won't hurt it.
