The transmission was shifting ok until I pulled a 3000 lbs tailer. Then it started to hang in gear.

ok, good. the first thing I would try is changing the fluid and filling with full synthetic fluid. if it does not get any better, then the trans will have to be pulled and inspected for the failure.
