Auto Downshift, Tow/Haul Off

I encountered a few 6% downgrades. I pulled the tranny down a gear and gently pumped the brakes, the tranny dropped into an even lower gear but tow/haul wasn't activated.

Is this expected behavior?

Thanks.

Perhaps by dropping a gear: you enabled that downshifting...

On the later model units that feature is on all the time (its even on the cars: I know both our Escape's do it).

My 2016 ACE 30.1 has always downshifted all on it's own regardless of what position the tow/haul switch is in. Even had the tranny program updated.
Don't want it, don't need it, wish I could deactivate this so called feature completely.😎
