Why would you not want the sway control and stability function?
I believe it only works by cutting engine power and using the brakes. If you are at that point, it's more of a crash protection mechanism rather than "sway control" or "stability control".
It's nice to have if you do ever get to that point, but really you should set yourself up to never get to that point. Which means proper length trailer to Tow vehicle ratio, and a weight distribution hitch.
