Tow Haul Mode

OK, I have a 2006 SeaBreezeLZ, Ford F53. There is a switch on the upper left side of the dash that says Tow/Haul mode. I have looked through the manual, both the National and the Ford manual and can find no reference to it. So I'm now "lost". Any ideas?

On my 2008 Sightseer it's on the shifter. I'm sure it's the same thing but I've never seen it on the dash unless it was a Workhorse chassis that had some sort of engine or grade brake located there. Good feature- it's been nice to have on mountain down grades.

It changes the shift points of the transmission. When accelerating or decelerating, it will shift at a higher speed that normal. This will give better performance in hilly terrain, but will sacrifice fuel economy. In flat areas, you might just as well leave it off.
