I just did 3000 miles towing from Southern Colorado to Glacier, Yellowstone, Tetons and back. Did some extreme grades and passes. Usually left in 6 speed drive and let it find it's own gearing. On the downhills, I tried locking out 5th or 6th, or using the manual gear select to maintain or select one gear at a time. The tow mode is also great for the descents as it will help you maintain your speed based on what you have braked to. What's nice is that you have three options to suit the situation or momentum.
