Back in the 80’s my parent basically blew the engine on their Jeep Grand Cherokee (the big full size jeep). The jeep was not geared for towing. It had the power. After a number of seasons of towing they burned the valves on two cylinders (while coming back from a trip without the TT). From that experience I would say if you are overloading the TV you are risking major drive train failures.

As I've said twice now we are not overloading the TV.

After a trip pop your hood open and have a sniff. Do you smell coolant? If so, you have an external leak and a pressure test will locate it. The water pump bypass hose is an often neglected little guy that is usually the culprit.

If you suspect a coolent leak into the cylinders check the exhaust for a puff of white smoke on the first start of the day, check under the metal rad cap when cool the white globs will form on the caps spring, if you see any of these signs go for a pressure check ASAP
