Towing heavy with 6.0 best tune?

Picked me up a 36' toy hualer weighed in at 10200 lbs empty gonna be lookin at 14-15 k loaded. I usually tow with the idp 65hp tow with jake break feature but never towed nothing this heavy and don't want problems curious what best tunes would be. I'm thinking about towing it in stock but I really like the jake break feature. Any opinions or advice would be great

08 6.4 cc/lb.

Tow it empty at first. See if there's anything that gives you more reason for concern. Otherwise get back to stock for the heavy towing.

You see, in this world there's two kinds of people my friend....those with loaded guns, and those who dig.

You dig.

my custom tow tunes don't add power and thats when your real concerns come in
ask your tuner or watch your EGT's

Mayby I'll have to get with idp I like the jake break and early fan feature mayby get that with a stock power tune. Or see how egts and temps act with the 65 hp tune

Re: Towing heavy with 6.0 best tune?

if I am not towing big hills I will leave a performance tune in because I can mind the EGT's
but hills are hard since you need the pedal down
