Cruise Control Question

I tow an 11,000# fifth wheel and have never used the cruise control while towing. Flat or hilly, I don't feel comfortable on cruise. Any Thoughts ???

I use cruise control all the time when hauling our 16k# 5er. It holds it steady at whatever speed I set....which is normally around 60 to 63. LOVE IT! It makes our long hauls so much more enjoyable.

Of course, however, I do not use it during foul weather and when around heavy traffic. But on open interstate....hilly, flat or otherwise, use it all the time. Couldn't imagine our trips without it!

I use mine when towing also when traffic allows.

I haul a 14K 5er and use cruise all the time on the interstate. Never had a problem.
