Both my 6.7s were pulling campers at around 400-500 miles. No problems at all.

I think now its more for the computer than anything.

My 2015 F 250 diesel engine manual says not to tow or carry heavy loads for the first 500 miles. We left on a 5000 mile trip with 565 miles on it.

My Ford had 300 km then I towed. I was told directly from Service Manager at the dealer I purchased from was no constant speed. I towed back roads and varying speed allow for cool down periods for the first tow and then I was out of the break in period.

Anyway just remember that computer is remembering everything.

That's the part where the Manufacturer can getcha if they want to.

If you have or are considering a new Ford 6.7 this is right out of the supplement manual.

Breaking-In Your Vehicle
Your vehicle does not need an extensive
break-in. Try not to drive continuously at
the same speed for the first 1000 miles
(1600 kilometers) of new vehicle
operation. Vary your speed to allow parts
to adjust themselves to other parts.
Drive your new vehicle at least 500 miles
(800 kilometers) before towing a trailer.
Make sure you use the specified engine oil.
See Technical Specifications (page 57).

That's where the 1000 mile number that stuck in my head came from. I did put a 1000 on before towing although only 500 was required though.

Ram manual said 500 miles. While talking to a friend that works for them, he mentioned that it's more about the ring and pinion mating than anything else.
