That's kind of what I figured, thanks. But is the problem the harsh shifts, or is the problem the TCC slipping from not being able to handle that much power?

Let's remove the shifting while locked from the question for now and focus on the actual lockup clutch. Would I be able to push enough power through the TCC to actually slip or damage it?

For example- When I moved to Memphis, I pulled a 2500 pound trailer full of my stuff through the mountains. When I was climbing mountains, the I had the trans in 2nd or 3rd gear under a lot of load. Would climbing with the converter locked cause the clutch to slip, or would it hold the power okay? Thanks
