My 2014 Tahoe has super cooling with a big tranny and oil cooler, and the tranny runs about 175-180 during the summer heat down the highway (a lot cooler during cooler weather) and 190-192 while towing our SolAire 20RBS. Crossed southern New Mexico from Alamogordo to Las Cruces through White Sands in 105 degree heat in June. Things didn't start heating up until we started climbing San Augustine Pass. I turned off the A/C and temps dropped like a stone. It was a bit stuffy when we hit the top but temps were good.

I always change the fluid when it starts to darken; it should be a pale pink when fresh and in good condition. Tranny fluid is a whole lot cheaper than a new tranny.

Check into a Edge insight a little pricey, but you can monitor much more that trans temp with one.

I can think of several recent threads on the forum where your posting would have been appreciated.

Being a first-time diesel owner [2013 Chevy Duramax/Allison 2500HD], I saw 215* for tranny temp on my Bullydog tuner. Not knowing the max temp, it scared the hell out of me. We were pulling up a 6%-14% grade with very little relief and no pullover sites. Had me sweating big time! Called my dealer and he told me about the warning coming on at 250*. Until that time, I didn't even know about a warning, much less the max temp. Never saw it in the manual and I read that thing cover to cover several times.
It generally runs around 155-175 on low hills and flat land.

You can get a ScanGaugeII @ Advance Auto for around $150. Order it online and use promo code TRT30 to get a discount and pay only $111.99.
It will read not only Trans temp but practically every other sensor on the powertrain. It can also check for codes.
Below is a picture of it's display. Simple one plug hook up to the OBDII port under the dash.
