Seriously though I think the grade brake on the F53 is great!
Yea... Never ever use he cruise control on the uphill run.
I live in Denver and cross 70 4 or 5 times a year heading west and have also shown a number of my friends how you cross 70 in a RV without feeling like it is driving you instead of the other way around.
On the F53 (when I still had my 2008) I would pick the speed I wished to descend at just before I crested the next drop and lock the cruise control with the tow haul in place. Works like a charm as long as you pick the speed right, which for me was 45 mph.
