Make sure if you have overdrive off button its off... Check all fluids..
Be very carefull on downslopes.. Make wide right turns.... Hmmmmmm
What else..... rofl

I assume the trailer has brakes. If so.. I think you will be OK.. You will get better gas mileage if you maintain a steady pace.. Keep a smooth throttle on up slopes and let the trailer push you down hill.. IF you have any big hills the best bet with braking is steady and constant.. Fanning the brakes makes them get hot..
Thats all I can think of .. If you have any specific questions ask..

Oh yeah.. Make sure all the bolts are tight in your hitch and check tranny fluid and make sure your tranny cooler is clean of obstructions... Mr. Green Mr. Green

Good luck..
