Tow Haul Mode when towing Honda CR-V

I have a 2014 Georgetown v-10 gas. Do I need to use the Tow/Haul mode when towing my 2014 CRV EX-L ?

Yes , Tow/Haul , will help with acceleration and holding speed on hills, transmission cooling with the extra load. Should not effect fuel mileage, when on level ground using cruise control.
Complete details should be in your Ford Chassis owners manual.

When I had the Allegro 36LA I never used the tow/haul except in in hills and mountains. It changes the shift pattern so that it down shifts sooner to take advantage of engine braking. It also up shifts slower, staying in a lower gear longer. Never found that part necessary towing my CRV, just used it like an engine brake.

Same here. I only used it to help braking. Don't like the shift patterns when it is on.
