Towing: 2006 Escalade. Trans cooler necessary?
The wife and I just bought a 25' travel trailer. I know the Escalade has plenty of power to pull the 2400lbs camper, but I'm curious if a trans cooler is necessary. If the truck has one from the factory, the cooler should be integrated into the radiator. If it doesn't, would it be recommended to buy one?

Re: Towing: 2006 Escalade. Trans cooler necessary?
Yes, your Escalade came stock with a small Tranny cooler, which is usually sufficient if your not pulling much for too long, just keep in mind that heat is your tranny's biggest enemy. If you will be climbing hills especially, keep an eye on it, and dont let it run too hot for too long. I religiously try to keep mine from climbing over 175. I have heard that is the magic number.
