On all my vehicles when towing a heavy trailer close to the limit I installed an extra separate transmission cooler and never pulled in overdrive mode. Dont forget that your 3000 lbs dry weight is probably close to 4000 lbs + with the propane. Battery, all the goods you bring in the trailer plus the occupants and the rest. Towing in mountainous regions in really taking a heavy tool on the powertrain.
