Ford Motor Company / 2017 f-350 / transmission

Bought a 2017 F-350/gas around the first of the year. Researched and everything. Use the vehicle for beekeeping. Pulling a trailer, approx. 12, 000# and the transmission winds up to sustained 4-5000 rpm and won't upshift. Griffin Ford / Waukesha, WI says this is normal and keep running. The transmission checked out okay there. Service tech there kept telling me the truck weighs 10, 000# and I need to reduce my trailer load. My truck spec says it weighs 6, 800# plus me and my stuff. Never go there again. I use tow/haul, and have been using manual shift. Accelerating up a hill and the truck bogs down, even without a trailer. Will not accelerate to road speed until road levels off. Oil dipstick keeps kinking, and I need to feed it inch by inch back down. I'm definitely disappointed. Sold my 04 Dodge 2500 diesel, which did everything, but was getting worn out at 300K miles.
