Hemi V8's do have 16 Plugs from what year Dodge started I do not know, I just changed mine out yesterday and Yes 16 of them on my 2006 Ram SLT(2 per cylinder) the 2nd plug is to burn off the remaining unburnt fuel vapors on the bottom side of the down stroke. This is Dodge's way of saving fuel mileage, the engine has been designed with MDS(multiple displacement system) to where the engine runs on 4 cylinders until on demand you desire the other 4 cylinders to kick in. The MDS works at slower and crusing speeds. Also if your vehicle is a 4x4 with a limited slip rear end you do need to change your rear differental fluid at the 15,000 mile manufactor recomendation or a chatter will begin to occur no matter what your towing situations are. The 2WD truck at the 30,000 mile.

26??? Someone is pulling your leg. That, or they have no idea what they are talking about.
What size hemi? the 5.7 or the 6.1?
Changing the diff fluid is a maybe. How big of a trailer (weight)? How often do you tow it? What kind of distances? What kind of terrain (hilly, flat, mix)? All of those items come into play.

1 plug per cylinder unless its some sort of exotic 2 plug per cylinder variant.In other words if its a v8 it will have 8 spark plugs.You would not change diff fluid although i would be interested to know what your advisor would replace it with.Im sure the factory that built your vehicle knew you would be towing if they put a tow bar on it.
