Interestingly enough I have used 4x4 mode mostly in the state of FL where they tend to dump gravel on top of sand. One tends to grove down into the deep sand very quickly while maneuvering back and forth to position the coach for utility access. When I see the coach or truck starting to sink
, I put the truck into 4x4 LOW mode upon which I then put the transmission into drive while letting it walk right out of the situation at idle acceleration speed. This is a great feeling
over having to call road service and yelling at the birdbrain who didn't make the gravel deep or compact enough!!!
