Using Tow / Haul Mode

Just curious if the consensus here is to always use this mode when towing something heavier than 4000lbs on a 2012 JGC V8? It definitely killed my MPG (around 11 when towing my TT) so I am wondering if it's only to be used when towing on grades, etc or if all the time is best. Thanks!

All the time. There will be a lot less stress on the transmission when used. I pull just a pop up camper that weighs about 2500 dry and use tow/haul always. It keeps the mds from kicking in and also keeps the overdrive out.

Got it - thanks for the advice! Wish the MPG hit wasn't so big, but better gas than money on a transmission
