Need help from smarter people

I just got the Edge Evo HT programmer/Tuner. After plugging it in/installing it/setting it, it said to unplug it from the truck. I could not find anything in the instructions about whether or not it needs to be plugged in to work. I set it the tuner to "towing", so does this mean that the truck is now "tuned" to operate for towing? And if so, then do I have to "re-tune" it to "economy", for example, when I'm NOT towing?
I'll continue to look on the edge sight for answers.

Thanks!

Well, I ended up calling Edge tech support and got my answers. I wish they were a little more clear in their manual or somewhere, at least. Thanks anyway!

Oops, guess I didn't impart that info. The tech at Edge told me that after you set the tuner for the program you want (performance, economy, light towing and heavy towing), you unplug it and put it away. It does not need to be plugged in to work. However, if you've set it for towing, for example, when you're done towing you need to plug it in and tune it to whatever other option you want.

I have had an edge Evo with built in gauges for 2 years if I can answer anything else let me know

Love the unit btw. Hopefully you already have gauges on your truck.

Just the standard ones. Actually our son (studying diesel mechanics at UNOH), said this is what I needed to get to improve my mileage and towing. Did this make much of a difference in your mileage?

Towes like a dream and I did pick up an extra mile or two per gallon, might be partially due to the s and b intake and the 4" exhaust

In conversation with tcijoe, I have learned much about tuners and really appreciate his help. As others have said, this is a great forum filled with friendly, helpful people.
