That's an interesting thought. My owner's manual doesn't say that (at least I haven't caught it), but I can see how that could possibly happen. I will keep that tidbit in mind.

Top of page 289 in the Super Duty owners guide. "Warning: Do not use the tow/haul feature when driving in icy or slippery conditions as the increased engine braking can cause the rear wheels to slide and the vehicle to swing around with the possible loss of vehicle control." I believe this would apply to all makes equipped with tow/haul.

Interesting. Never knew or even considered that with our Tow/Haul mode. We don't typical hit ice/snow, but downpoars while traveling are always possible. We have the F-150 so one of us will look into for our half ton.

I think the term "slippery" would apply to even a partially hydroplaned tire.
