MrTommy I'm a little disappointed in the exhaust brake on my 2016. I had a D-Delerator exhaust brake installed on my old 97 7.3 and it worked a lot better. But there was no Tow/Haul on that old beast either. On my 2016, between the Tow/Haul option and the exhaust brake, I've so far, had no downhill problems. I'm still learning how all this stuff works.

DA28 I pulled my 5er for the first time toaday.
It was only about a 5 mile pull to the RV shop to get some work done.
First impressions are...I like the way the transmission works in tow/haul. The exhuast brake works better than my 6.0.
Oh yeah....power OMG 😁😁😁

Yes sir, select both and go out and tow! My exhaust brake on my 2017 F350 is much more aggressive than the one on my 2015 F350.

I'm with ya Jerry. These trucks know when a trailer is disconnected, why can't the tow/haul mode remain on until the trailer is disconnected? Or better yet, any towing related settings (exhaust brake or otherwise)

@NVERL8 - I don't believe the exhaust brake is aggressive enough to drag the rear wheels in the rain, especially if you are loaded up. Perhaps turning off that brake in the snow/ice would be a good idea!

That's just the way it is, and cannot be changed.

HeavyAssault Yes, just hook up whatever you are pulling, turn on Tow/Haul, and go to work.

Tow/Haul for me even unloaded in heavy traffic. Seems to shift better when stop-n-go is the traffic conditions.
