Keep Tow Haul on 24/7

Is there a way to keep the tow haul mode hardwired on? I have employees who drive the truck loaded and would like to be sure it is always used in tow haul mode.

You're not supposed to use tow/haul when roads are wet/in winter. I think using it in the wet or when it's winter is a bigger issue than not having it on at all. Might be able to get the dealership to program it but f your employees are too forgetful to turn it on, they're probably going to be too forgetful to turn it off when road conditions become poor.

Get new employees? Jk Maby try contacting H&S or Spartan maby they can write you a program. Why isn't it to be used when its wet/winter? Are they concerned about it down shifting (engine braking) and losing traction?

Yes, that would be why.
