I have the 5.3l LTZ Silverado 2010. I experimented with mine with or with tow/haul engaged. It definitely likes the button pushed. 63 on relatively level ground,cruise on us about it without having the tranny searching. Truck and trailer was close, but not overloaded

THAT is the key... as soon as the tranny starts to search drop down a gear... hunting up and down is the hardest thing on them.

What Seann45 said is key, if the TV is hunting for the gear downshift, it is better to run at a higher RPM, then to burn a valve or something else. I am not sure what style shifter you have or if you have a tow/haul mode button you can push. If you have a shifter like my parent’s older Suburban you just select 3rd gear and go. If you have something like my Dakota (4.7 litter with a six speed tranny) I just push a button and the computer changes all my shift points and keeps me out of OD.
