    I have a Chevy D/A combo with a 9'2" Boss and I am wondering if you guys are plowing in tow/haul or not. I plow in tow/haul with my F-550 but it also is loaded with salt. It seems to be fine plowing just regular mode but wondered what others are doing.

    I do, at a minimum for the reason that it keeps the transmission cooler "on" at all times. Also keeps the engine in the power band with the modified shift points - even though I don't make it beyond 2nd gear usually.

    Nope, unless the trailer is there, I always forget to press the button.

    I have never used the tow/haul, and I plow in 2 wheel drive unless I spin
