    Hello HVT,

    I just discovered your forum entries on towing heavy and that our F-150 diesels might go into limp mode under certain conditions such as climbing mountains. Has me concerned so I thought I ask you a followup question, please?

    My 2018 F-150 diesel is a 2x4 short box crew cab, with towing package, 3.31 gears. Have been considering a rather heavy Arctic Fox 25P travel trailer that would weigh in at around 8K lbs loaded, around 1K tongue weight. I should be OK with these weights. But, something I never considered before are your observations that towing near max weight increases passive re-eng and can put the engine in limp mode. I have some pretty good mountains in Oregon where I'll be using the trailer and would not want to go into limp mode on those hills.

    Would appreciate your advice, if have the time.

    Cheers
    Craig
