I'm curious if this umbilical cord is the problem that is causing only the right blinker and tail lights to work...and only if we keep the Tahoe's headlights on at all times.

Well, all things considered, she tows pretty well with the Tahoe! We used the Curtis 1000/10000 WD hitch, anti-sway bar, and brake controller. We had no weight in the very rear of the Tahoe and hitched her as close to the Tahoe as possible and took it at a reasonable speed.

Question, will I need another tranny cooler if I already have the tow package?

It won't hurt, but you shouldn't need it.

All tow packages are different, but typically they include things like a stronger tranny, larger alternator, upsized radiator, plug-n-play brake controller, extendable mirrors, larger brakes, heavier hitch receiver, and on and on.

Likely the stock transmission is strong enough, but I've heard that some add a larger oil pan with the tow package. With some research you may be able to find the specific features that were upgraded with the tow package.
