Traveling the Georgia mountains with a f250 gas

I have a Ford f250 gas 5.4 pulling a Flagstaff 32ft lightweight fifth wheel approx. 9000lbs. And wondering if I would have any problems getting up the north GA. mountains with this rig.

Put it in tow/haul mode and press on the gas. For steep climbs keep it in the 4-4.5K RPM range and you will have no problem. I have been all over the eastern mountains and the western mountains with mine hauling 9K.

No problem with mine, but it is a 6.2 gasser.

WELCOME Pick..... Hope you enjoy the North Georgia mountains.

We live in North Georgia and have a F250 diesel and pull a 30' toy hauler. No issues towing on grade...just make sure you ARE in tow mode!
Many roads are narrow and very twisty. BE SAFE!

There are many wonderful campgrounds. Make sure your rig will fit.
Also there are many great day trip to take while here visiting.
Lots of wineries, historical sights and places to fish, hike and raft.

What is tow mode in a truck I see people saying this but not sure what this is. Are you saying to put the trans in drive and not over drive or is that something else

You didn't say what year your truck is. Maybe you only have an overdrive lockout. Look in your owners manual. Don't think the 4 speed has a tow haul button.
