Deathrend will become famous soon enough

So I'm wondering if I should be using it or not. I have a 2010 CCSB Sport with 3.55's, 2WD. I'm pulling roughly 3,000 lbs (1,500lb boat, 600lb motor, 300lbs gas, trailer, gear and other things).

Should I be using the Tow/Haul button for a bass boat? It's a 20" Skeeter with a Yamaha 200 VMax. I'm pulling it 250 miles today, I average around 20-22 MPG without anything so far I'm doing around 12-13 with the boat in Tow Haul mode.

Should I just watch transmission temp gauge and play it by ear?
