F150, Micro Minnie, and the Godzilla.
Yes, it is The Godzilla … was trying not to be too ostentatious.The “road” to the Godzilla is interesting.
The Micro Minnie is not a large trailer, and initially was pulling with a 2019 F150 3.5 with twin turbos. Plenty of power/torque, BUT when pulling up hills (not mountains)in warm conditions, the engine temp would close in on the red line, often shutting the turbos off and resulting in loss of power when needed the most. I’m light on the gas pedal and my ideal cruising speed when towing is 62 mph.
Talked to my dealer, put it on the computer, and all was normal. Changed coolant, same situation. Another dealer said “turbos run hot”. Yes, but to the redline? Common sense told me it wasn’t if there would eventually be a major failure, just a matter of when. Put on over 7500 miles towing the Micro with the 150
Enter Godzilla, along with the idea that a larger trailer was in the cards. It pulled the Micro like a champ. 104 degrees in MT this past July, 5000+ elevation, temp gauge never even twitched. Looking forward to see how she handles the 2529RG.
