xrt pro: towing- tow/haul

i have read in many different places to that if you tow with the tuner it best to either tow on a wild or hot tune and not use the tow/haul mode or to run no power and use tow/haul mode

my question is why cant i use both ( a wild tune and tow/haul mode)

thanks jeremy

you can use tow/haul, definitely helps ease the braking on my truck and trailer slowing down. i tow 10-12k pounds amost daily with tow/haul but i run the mild tune. you can run the wild or hot tune but have to watch temps. i try to keep it safe so i stay on mild and you dont have to worry about temps getting out of hand too much.
