Have a 2012 Dodge Diesel 3500 pulling a trailer. The transmission is heating up to 233 on flat ground and 240 going up a small incline. Can you tell me if this is getting too hot?

Hi, my name is ***** ***** is nt too hot, if you are pulling a trailer, and is normal depending on the trailer weight, the upper end of the scale is about 270 degrees, when it gets over 270, you need to start worrying about it, I pull a 13000 lbs trailer and going up mountain passes, it can reach as high as 250 degrees,Tim

as long as its not getting above 270 degrees, you are fine,Tim
