It all depends on what you are towing and where. Where as in flatlands or mountains. If you are driving and the trans is hunting for gears-it's time for tow/haul mode. I use it everytime my trailer is hooked up, keeps water temp, trans temp, oil temp down. Tow/haul mode sets up different parameters keeping everything in check.

I agree with what my09hemi says.

When it starts hunting, that's when the constant shifting will start generating heat in the transmission, which is not good. It may not be a heavy load but rather the steepness and duration of the grade which initiates the shifting.
