Tow/Haul with 250 Tune?

I was wondering if it is ok to tow a load with the Spartan 250 tune? Pulling an 18 ft. tandem trailer with 4 4wheelers on it tomorrow. Didn't know if I should switch to the 210 Tow/Haul of if I could leave it. May be a stupid question, but I was curious. Use tow/haul button with 250 tune if pulling load?

Using the tow/haul mode won't hurt anything. However, I would not recommend pulling heavy loads with anything higher than the 210. The 210 has all the safety parameters built in, and helps prevent damaging anything. I know people tow all the time running the 275, and even the 310 tunes, but I wouldn't recommend it. You might be ok with the 250, but it is still a race tune.
