Towing a big toy hauler w/ a tune
So we bought our '08 F-450 to haul a 5th wheel toy hauler. Well its time to actually put it to use here shortly.
What are some of the issues those that have hauled loads have ran into.
Currently running the H&S Hot Damn tune will I have troubles down the line if I only tow in the lowest 'no power' tune? (we know that this IS more than stock) I would like to hear stories of those that have towed loads like this with their trucks.
Will I need airbags? (tongue weight is about 3000 pounds)
How do I set/ adjust the break controller?
Do you run different air pressure in your tires while loaded?
What mileage can I expect under load within the given speed limits.
Those that have towed what have you added to your truck to help make your trips safer or better?
