That solenoid is inside the trans. The fact you were towing something heavy had nothing to do with the failure. You need to take it to a shop that can check the cvi's(clutch volume index) & some other critical components.

The power steering pressure switch is threaded onto the high pressure hose that runs from the pump to the steering rack and pinion gear.
There are two hoses connected to the pump. Follow the high pressure line until you come to the switch, unthread it and install the new one. Fairly easy to do on this one. A little thread seal might be a good idea.
There may be some spillage so have a drain pan ready under the truck and have some new fluid ready to top it up afterward.
Just in case you are curious why the switch is needed I will give you the reason.
Your steering pump is driven by the engine so it does take a little horsepower. When turning it uses a little more power. So the switch sends a signal to the computer to bump the engine power up a little to compensate for the turning load. Keeps the engine speed from going erratic and/or stalling.

SOURCE: how do I know if
If is no leak, then maybe you need to bleed the power steering pump. jack the vehicle from the front , and leave the tires free from floor.Take off the steering pump cap, pull the steering wheel all the way to one side and hold for few seconds, let the system to bleed air , then pull all the way to the other side and do the same. somone should be looking the pump to see if air bubles are coming out, repeat as nessesary, If after this proceidure power steering still hard and noisy, replace the pump.
Note: Safety first. Use stand jacks and other security tools to prevent accidents.
