I tried tow/haul and from my experience with dodge trucks when you hit t/h the torque converter unlocks and rpm goes up just a little. that didn't happen at all with this unit. just wonderin. thanks,doug
3000 rpm would be about normal at 75mph... 75mph is not necessarily normal in a 30+ foot mh...
Just remember he/she isn't going to stop like your car.... then again neither would your toy hauler.
Tow/Haul will change the shift points.... and on older mhs will cause a downshift when you tap brakes... Newer (last couple of years) I believe will downshift on brake tap without tow/haul being on...
The Ford V10 likes to rev... wait till you go uphill and it downshifts... twice... The transmission will keep the engine safe - it will be loud.
