H&S trans settings

This may be another dumb question but here goes. I have just tuned my truck with an XRT PRO and am not too fond of the trans setting S1M I was wondering if anyone has tried any of the other downloadable trans tune (schedule 1 low , medium, high, schedule 2 low, medium, high) and what speeds they lock up in 5th. I'm kinda wanting similar to factory which was 50 mph with my stock 18 in rims and 3.73 gear. The S1M setting locks about 52 but I dont like locking in 4th just 5th. And also which trans setting may be best for towing my 10000lb. camper. I have tuner set on "no power" just because i tuned to rid truck of dpf.

I tried the S2 Med. Thought I liked it at first, but found I missed the 4th gear lockup. So I went back to S1 Med. 4th gear lockup makes getting on the highway seamless and smooth. I also run mine on the hot (250) setting when I'm not towing, no-power when I am. This combo has given me the best overall mileage so far. I suggest just trying different tunes and find what YOU like best. I plan to experiment some more also. Btw, I'm averaging roughly 14-16 mpg in town, and 19-23 mpg highway. But I've yet to do a long distance test to get a more accurate reading.
