Me and the lady just recently picked up a used RV (travel trailer) that's in incredible shape. It's a 1987 Shasta Revere 22' long. I won't bore you with the details. My question is: how important is it to use the trailer option on my truck (the button on the end of the shift handle)?
I have a full size 2004 Silverado, the camper is only 3500 lbs, so very well below max towing capacity. The trailer option on the shifter holds gears longer and shifts smoother to put less strain on the transmission - or something like that, I'm not a mechanic by any means but I read manuals from cover to cover.
Is this really necessary? I would have no problem doing it, but it sucks gas a heck of a lot faster than not using it and now is not the time to find reasons to use MORE gas.
Your advice is appreciated, brothers!
