If I'm not mistaken, the Tow/Haul mode on the F-53 Chassis changes the shift points in the transmission. You also get some engine braking when slowing down. At least that's how our 2014 Bay Star on the F-53 works.

It probably ends up being personal preference, rather a hard and fast rule.

Same rig as yours towing a Nissan Xterra 4wd which is a bit heavier than the CRV. As mentioned I mostly use T\H mode on downhills. It does a very good job of shifting to provide engine braking. Sometimes use it on uphills but almost never when on the flat.
