I have a 29 foot GreyHawk and I use it all of the time, wether towing or not. I like the way it automatically downshifts when breaking.

I use mine towing or not all the time in the mountains. Minimizes shifting climbing passes and really helps with braking on the downgrades.

I've only used it in hilly terrain.

Think about it, why does anyone think that it is there? Use it when towing or hauling anything of any significance.

Well, as our MH's are basically within spitting distance of max GVWR, one could argue that we're effectively hauling from the word go. So I see the merit in using tow/haul all the time based on the definition of what the button is supposed to do.

In practice, I've found regular mode to be just fine on flat ground; I do hit the button in hilly terrain as I mentioned.

I use mine all the time now. I used to just use it when I was towing my Jeep, but now I just automatically turn it on. I've found that cruising along, I will get less shifting when climbing overpasses and small grades. Without the T/H mode on, the trans will shift frequently; shifting creates heat in an automatic transmission; less shifting=less heat=longer lasting transmission.

I'm actually not a fan of the aggressive engine braking under normal driving conditions though. Like when I'm exiting a freeway and need to coast and slow down gently, as I get slower and slower, the engine braking gets quite aggressive and will cause my rig to jolt as it downshifts. This disruption is quite unnerving while navigating a turn, and could actually be a bit dangerous. It doesn't happen all the time, and I've learned how to mitigate it, but the first few times it was quite annoying.

Other than that one little issue, I prefer to drive the rig with T/H activated in general.
