blackpearldodge is on a distinguished road

I notice the hard down-shift as well...while coasting to a stop.
When I'm pulling my 32' travel trailer (6,000 lbs), that's when I notice the hard "Pop" into gears (like when it's trying to drop a gear). I use Tow/Haul mode when pulling too.
There are times that, when I put the transmission into gear (from park), the truck wants to lunge forward, and quite harshly too.
