Best Settings For Smarty Jr For Towing Heavy?

Ok, I know there are about 10 million topics on this and I think I've read 9 million of them, some all the way back to 08 but I am getting mixed opinions and info imo.

So I installed the Smarty JrME yesterday w/o doing the Deletes, I have the parts just haven't had time to install them yet, I will be pulling my 5th wheel this weekend which is around I'd guess 17-19k loaded up, truck is stock with only a filter and DIY air box mod and the Smarty. Its an Auto DRW QC 4x4 w/ 3:73's.

What would be the best settings to have this thing on, I'm on 3 now and love it but not sure I can tow heavy with it and not cook the trans so what is recommended for undeleted and then how about after I delete it?

Thanks everyone.

I tow on switch 1, and it tows way better than stock which was good to start with. I think with the auto you shouldn't go higher than 2 ( and watch you temps ) without trans mods.

The reason you can't find a definitive answer is because there isn't one.

If you want to just go and not worry about it, SW1 would be your best bet. You will *probably* be ok on SW2. Stock tranny, no gauges, heavy towing I wouldn't go to SW3.

Personal opinion. Like I said, no one size fits all answer. The deletes aren't going to help your tranny any, which is going to be your weakest link (IMHO). Even with an upgraded tranny, however, you still should get some gauges to monitor egts, boost, and tranny temp at a minimum.

Ran about 300 miles up north and back on SW2 still w/o the deletes and it seemed to pull better going down the road just cruising but I think stock pulls better during acceleration, not positive but to me it felt that way. MPG was maybe a little better by maybe .5 but I noticed the MPG Gauge didn't fluctuate as much as before.

I hit the CAT Scale at a truck stop on the way back to end my curiosity and with 1/2 empty tanks it was 25,680, not sure what the truck should weigh on its own though.

Probably gonna do the deletes and run on the stock setting to help keep the transmission from dying

Ran the SW3 towing nothing and OMG what a difference lol!!!

Sounds like a good haul.

For reference, mine is roughly 7500lbs. I'd say anywhere in the 7-8k range is a good ballpark as far as weight goes.
