Thank you for your reply. How do I engage the towing mode ? I do not see where you would put it into towing mode ?

cobblestone..... I'm not familiar with the Tundras, but most of the newer truck models have a "Tow Mode" button that you press. On your 2004 Tundra, it may not have one.

But if your truck has the factory tow package, it is probably set up to tow already.

I found a link for you where someone bought a 22' trailer and was wondering if his truck would pull it. It is the same year and model as yours.

Here it is:

Do you think I should push the button to take it out of O/D while towing?

There are different schools of thought on that issue. I believe if you have enough truck for the load that you can leave it in OD as long as it doesn't start "searching" for a gear. If it's shifting back and forth, take it out of OD. I'd also take it out of OD on hills, both up and down, as you can use the engine braking to assist with brakes.

You're doing the right thing here asking for answers before you learn on your own - the hard way!

Thank You

Thanks again for all the quick answers. I often feel guilty for asking so many questions, but how else does a person know?
While I'm at it, is it fairly easy to install a power tongue jack? Any particular brand that is the most popular? Thanks----Mike

I got a Barker power jack and had it installed in less than 30 minutes..... Main reason is, it has a 2 year warranty, just like Jayco!!
