i have 07 edge with 40k. i have used for light towing, 1000 to 1200 lbs, for approx 800 miles. would this justify the severe service tranny flush?

According to a former Ford tranny engineer - almost anything other than long highway driving is severe. He recommends 30K service. Other Ford engineers say 150K is just fine. Personally I'd do either 30K or 60K based on your comfort level. It's cheap insurance.

Heat is the biggest killer of transmission fluid....

IN my opinion, as long as you didn't overheat/drive like a bat out of hell when towing, you should be fine.

 

As akirby said, I'd do the 30 or 60K service - cheap insurance.
