Thanks for the explanation, that makes sense now, but doesn't make sense from a manufacturers aspect. Oh well will just have to put in tow mode from now on.

The Diablo Intune really helped me. I ordered mine from Hemifever with a custom tune. It is like a different truck now. No more of the shifting issues that these Rams have. It doesn't have that "bogging down" feeling anymore. The shifts are firm and it stays in the correct gear for whatever speed you are going.

before you get a tuner, why not try the "tap" shift. might feel better to you.

Look at the documentation they did give you. There will be a toll-free number you can call and request they send you hard copies of the owners manual, media center and warranty manuals.
