anytime you are towing a trailor. i would never tow without the tow/haul mode being on, and the same goes for anytime there is a pretty heavy load in the bed (approaching payload)...........also it will prevent torque converter hunting by turning it on when going up a steep grade, even empty......Marc

uh oh, time to sound stupid again...

What is the Tow/Haul? Maybe we don't have one on ours? Mine is a 2003, but all we have is the ODrive selector on the Shifter, I don't know about any tow/haul selection..... Am I missing something?

Regards from Australia

Little button....

Its the little button on the end of the shifter that prevents the tranny from going into overdrive.

Thank you for that, and yes that is how we use it in Oz... Only put it on for flat or slight downhill running when heavy towing. Just wanted to make sure I was not missing something... Ha!

The tow/haul button is only on the torqueshift, which means 03.5 6.0's and later. The 7.3's with the 4r100 only has O/D off button. I'm pretty sure that the tow/haul button changes the shifting stragedy for the 5r100 and the O/D off button just turns the O/D off.

Its real easy to keep them on only takes a couple weeks worth of paychecks.

OD/Tow haul

So, just to get it straight if I am in my 2000 F 250 7.3 with my small slide in camper and I'm like heading for Colorado let's say in a few days I should have the OD off even if it is not shifting between 3rd and OD by itself ? les
