first camper trailer tow report!!
so towed a 23ft camper from Travis AFB to monterey CA, then back 2 days later about 304 miles. to finish up a scuba certification test and heres the spread so far...
04 f350 4in lift 35's, studded, deleted blue spring, straight pipe straight pipe 3.5in exhaust. trailer was a bumper pull weighted at 4703lb
average temps (went up on hills highest was 224 oil and 212 coolant)
EOT 216-218 normal going 54-59 at 2000-2100 rps on tow mode.
trans 160's-178 max
ran stock program so only had the egr delete check engine light on. i checked it mid trip both ways only egr code came on.
truck did really well but my lie-o meter said 9.9-10.6 mpg whole way... now my 35's are 9.33% larger then my stock tires so i just add about 1 mpg to that?
a dodge friend towed a 27ft fifth wheel with a 4 door 2wd 2003 5.9 common rail claimed he got 17 on way down few hrs after i got there... sounds little high but...?

1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....
