Banks six pack / Big Hoss

Hello Friends, Just purchased a 2006 F-550 6.0 with a Bank six pack installed, trying to find out the good,bad and ugly. Be gentile now, I'm new to all this! Just for general info I will be pulling a 15000 lb fifth wheel with this set up. The knob is currently set on 3. Is that good, like I said it's all new to me? I would really like to have some feedback so that I get started in the right direction.
Thanks ,
Bob

.......don't have a whole lot of experience with Banks, but I'm sure someone will be along shortly to help you out. Like he said guys, be gentle ........I do have a question would you consider getting rid of all the Banks stuff for better equipment?

I have the Banks 6 Gun on my 05 F250. I drive it everyday on "3" and pull a 6,000lb enclosed trailer, twice a month, for 400 miles, on setting "3" also.

the banks 6 gun is a good tuner. it will get the job done for you. is it the best NOT even CLOSE. and you would be ok with it if you have a manual trans. but if you have an auto you might want to consider swapping to an sct because it will treat your tranny a lot better than the banks unit will. im glad i switched from banks to SCT good luck
