You didn't say what year but I have an 11 Denali 6.2 AWD with manual shift. If yours has that try shifting down 1 gear to see if there's a difference. I don't think I'd worry unless I was seeing 240...

I don't know what your towing with other than a 1500 GM and don't know the weight or trailer you're towing but just slowing down to 60-62 will help with temps. You may just be expecting to much out...

What is "creep up a little"? 220f towing up a hill is no worry. 240 is worry territory and it's time to pull over.

Let it sit 24 hours. Then before starting, compare 3 temps.
1. Ambient air
2. Engine Coolant Temp.
3. Automatic Transmission Temp

They all should be within a few degrees Fahrenheit.

Yup that's the norm. That's what I meant by vertical, the 2 ports are an upper and a lower. It's been like that forever now and I'm just waiting for the day that some engineer gets a better idea.

Usually for the return line on the transmission, it's the rear most line (Ford) or if the fittings are vertical it's the lower line. Which was it in your GM?

160-180 is warm enough to cook off any moisture, it just takes longer than if it was at 212. If the truck is ran almost everyday moisture is not an issue. My Yukon sees temps to only 165 or so. So...
