  3. Thanks for the advice on tow haul mode, i agree that having it on when towing a trailer really helps in the hills and down grades. Noticed that it helps to in stop and go traffic too when towing. the truck responds better when accelerating and shifting, only tow a travel trailer a few times a year, the rest of the time the truck is a daily driver for the family, grand kids, a great all around vehicle!

I have used tow haul before in a Dodge truck when pulling a grade and going downhill grades in the Sierra Nevada mountains. When on the flat roads and interstates I use to just leave transmission in drive with no issues. The former Dodge had the 5.9 Cummins with auto transmission.
