Pulling a trailer with O/D on or off puts a strain on a tranny. Turn O/D off when going up hills.

To help the tranny keep cool, install a tranny cooler. They are not that expensive and not too hard to install.

A 700 lb trailer is no more than three good sized adults and their lunch boxes. It shouldn't cause any problems. I would just let it shift on its own.
