I'm towing my trailer (9,000 lbs loaded) on a 7 1/2 hour trip at low elevation. My friend is adamant that there would be absolutely no threat to high EGTs by towing with my Edge EZ set on level 1. His reasoning is that the temperature is going to be near zero degrees Fahrenheit outside during my trip. I do not have an EGT gauge installed yet (obviously) to monitor this. I'm not too eager to try it but it got me thinking he could be right.

hmmm......

FWIW, I have had EGTs over 1200 pulling a 24' enclosed snowmachine trailer in -25F weather. I have a 4" turbo back exhaust. If your towing is on fairly level ground, I wouldn't worry too much, but if you have to pull a bunch of hills like I was to go snowmobiling......Level 1 is like 40 HP? I usually run between 40 and 65 hp on my truck. Just don't lug the truck and the EGTs will stay low.
