    I have a 2021 F350 SRW with a 10-speed transmission. Shifts just fine when it is only the truck but add my 35-foot 5th wheel trailer and I have noticed that from being stopped like at a traffic signal, the light turns green...1st gear is smooth, 2nd shudders enough it can be felt in the steering, floor, seat, and this is not a jackrabbit start off the line, just normal acceleration. 3rd gear shudders about half as much then 4th gear on it is very smooth just like first gear. Anyone else experience this?

    I also have a 2021 F350 SWD diesel that occasionally shutters. Not as consistent was your. Mine at highway speeds up shifting.

    yep if its under warranty go let dealer take a look at it. i have not towed real heavy with mines yet, but it has never shuddered, in fact is so smooth i sometimes forget its shifting through 10 gears

    and have them check the carrier bearing, its been know to be out of alignment from the factory.

    Yes, always in tow/haul mode when this happens...when not pulling the 5th wheel it does not shudder at all. I do have plans to have the dealer look at it asap.
