SCT / Towing Question

Just bought a used SCT that I thought had the SCT factory tunes with it. However, when I installed the SCT, it did not give me any options for the three different tunes. There was just one choice, and I put it in. Tune is very nice! I plan on getting a custom tune, but until I'm ready gonna play with this one. 3 questions...

1. How do I find out my stradegy number?
2. How do I find out where the 3 factory tunes are?
3. I tow a trailer once a week. It maybe weigh's 1500 to 2000 lbs. Do I have to switch it back to stock or since the trailer is not that heavy, can I keep the tune installed.

Thanks,

Scott

On the canned tunes, it only gives you that one option. But if you go to that option and select the change user options, it will give you the street, 2 tow tunes, and all that good stuff to select from. ON the strategy part of the question, mine is under the check engine icon. I would check there to pull your strategy. Not sure which tune you are running, so I would take it easy with the trailer.
