Question about my 2010 6.4 L Ford Powerstroke

I Tow with a 2010 6.4L Ford Powerstroke and I pull a 2011 330rlts TT with a dry weight of 8750lbs.
I went camping this weekend and I noticed during my trip while I was towing at Highway speed (70 +or- mph) while pulling my TT uphills on the interstate it felt like my transmission started slipping. It felt like a shutter. When the transmission dropped into a lower gear the shuttering did feel like it went away. Has anyone else felt this and is this something I should be concerned with?
With out the TT my truck operates normally.

I could possibly be the torque converter going in and out of lockup.

My last Dodge would do that at times. I would not let that shuttering happen if possible. Try running a gear lower on the hills and it may not do it. You should also make sure that tow haul is engaged.

I would talk to the service manager at the Ford dealer. You may have a sensor going out. Your truck should still be under warranty.
2011 Eagle 330RLTS with just about every option.
2017 Silverado 1500 4x4 5.3 with tow package. (no, we don't tow the Jayco with it.)

Life in the slow lane is still life.
