Gearing up for the first "Big trip"

Been under the hood of my TV, 1996 F350 for 2 days..haha. In late December we are dragging the TT from Houston to central NM for a winter trip. This should be interesting.

I'm a tad anxious. First trip with the F-350, and alot of unknowns for me there. Oh and recently discovered it has an open rear diff.

Thats what this is, only SRW. I just replaced the UVCH and soldered in a newer model connector to replace my melted one. I also replaced the O-rings on the HPOP. It idles uneven when it starts until you high Idle, and I'm not sure how concerned I should be about that.

One thing I added was a transmission temp gauge. The transmission in mine was prone to over heating and I had to have it re-built several times before I could monitor the temps.

I think its common on the E4OD transmission. I plan to use an app called Torque Pro to monitor temps, IF I can get my OBD port working...

My 4R100 overheated twice. Both times the gauge was in the normal range until it almost popped into the red. I don't know if the gauge was bad or is just crappy frm the beginning. On a cool or even coldish morning it would be in the normal operating range in a short time, maybe a quarter or half mile. So I installed a gauge and now know what the temp is.

A neighbor and his sons have owned the Pikes Peak racing world in several events for decades, and he told me the problem was not keeping my revs sufficiently high when pulling a load up long, steep grades here in the mountains. He also pointed out that the transmission cooler was inadequate and recommended I put in a 6.0 cooler. That information has ended any overheating problems and so far I've not had to rebuild it.

We pulled our 2015 Flight 32BHDS to Wyoming this summer. Water/Coolant temp was the only thing that would get in the "hot" range (due to EGTs) and only when we were going over Raton pass and up to Laramie from Cheyenne.

"Must-have" mods made to my '99 7.3:

1) 4-gauges on pillar (EGT, Trans temp, Water temp, Turbo Boost - Autometer full-sweep dials)
2) K&N cold air intake
3) 6.0 Trans cooler
4) 4-inch MBRP exhaust

NOTE: So pleased with the water temp gauge. Factory gauge doesn't even move until about 240 degrees and then it moves suddenly to almost the "hot-red" range. Gives me peace of mind to know what's going on under the hood.

What's that trailer weigh?
My temp gauge moves, but stays on the cool side. Seems to be common with the 195* T-stat. I put in an EGT gauge, the others I plan to monitor with Torque (when I can get my OBD port working). I've heard the K&N's aren't great for turbos. The initial filtration level isn't high enough, and they get a bit restrictive once they start collecting. Today I installed a 3" down pipe and open element air filter. I'd like to get a trans cooler, but no time or money for it now. I do have some type of cooler mounted in front of the radiator, and I have trans. lines going to the radiator, so it's some type auxiliary cooler??
