X2. My F150 tows best in TM while keeping the tranny cool. No extra gear hunting and I get 11-13 MPG depending on how flat the terrain is.
I figure Ford's engineers, who state use TM while towing, are a lot smarter than me when it comes to the limits and capacities of my TV.
Happy RVing,
Jeff

Always while towing. Occasionally forget to reset it after a stop, but am reminded very quickly when trying to get back up to speed on the highway

Escapes me why you would not use this system. I do forget to reset it after a stop but reset it as soon as I see it. Really wish it would stay on when stops are short. Makes no sense to not use it because it might save a little fuel. The engine braking feature alone is enough to justify its use, but the improved shift points of the duramax/allison drive train makes the drive just as smooth as when not towing.

Same here, 100% of the time. The 6 speed in the Ford will go into OD while in tow mode at around 60mph on relative flat road. Also love the fact that touching the brake pedal drops the gears keeping braking to a minimum.

+1 on all of this. Travelling through the Black Hills last summer, I really appreciated this.

I don't use Tow/Haul! Going down the Ozark hills always resulted in the TD screaming at red line. I can not convince myself that this is good. Instead, I use the gear lockout feature on the Ford transmission to select my down hill gear and engine braking. I use the brake pedal lightly which uses the trailer brakes as a supplement. My H&S tuner also provides enhanced transmission tuning for level and uphill travel.

I ALWAYS use TH mode. That's why the manufacturer installed it. It gears the TV specifically for towing.

Your PSD loves to rev up. It's doing what it's designed for.

Always tow the TT in tow haul mode.
