Transmission Temperature when towing

We have a new to us 19# GeoPro by Rockwood. The max weight on this is 3,000# (dry). We bought a 2019 Traverse with factory towing package.

The dashboard transmission temperature read in the 240's going up a steep grade heading to Anza Borrego. We spoke with a service person at the dealership where we bought the car. He informed us these cars are designed to run hot. That they can tolerate the high temperatures due to their synthetic transmission fluid.

Reportedly there is a built in system in place to slow down the car when the engine or transmission is dangerously high. After that it seems it will then stop the far.

I am wondering what forum members and maybe auto professionals have to say about this? Thanks in advance!
