    I've towed my Airstream thousands of miles from Colorado to Santa Barbara several times - no tranny heating issues though I have now purchased the Desert Trans Cooler that apparently is an option in Saudi areas.
    Just need to install it.

    Yes. They are doing the repairs but this marks the second week I have had the truck in for service within the first 4 weeks of ownership. Frustrating.

    Turns out the "Saudi Trans Cooler" is for Gen 1 only.
    Oh well,

    The culprit ended up being a leak that caused the fluid level to be low. The transmission has been thoroughly inspect and the seals have been replaced. The truck appears to be operating properly now. I guess the true test will come the next time I need to tow.
