I go with the CC on all the time. But your question got me wondering why you asked it? Was there a particular reason?

If my cruise control didnít shut off when stepping on the brake it would be repaired prior to me using it again. I hope you focus on its repair for your safety and for the safety of those around you.

I mainly asked because I have seen other vehicles (Cars, pickups, etc.) that say not to use the CC when towing. My first tow (yesterday) with the RV I noticed the downshifts when ascending a grade was not quite as smooth as normal. I assumed due to the dead weight behind, but it made me think about it a little so I thought I would ask those in the know.

Well I certainly don't claim to be "in the know" but just "that is the way I always did it"! I never gave it much thought. Thanks.

Same Question

I have been puzzled for years by the same question. I have never seen a professional answer.

I use a Nissan Pathfinder to pull my Kodiak Cub. The Nissan is fully loaded and the manual says not to tow with CC.

I have not noticed any problems except having to use my foot to maintain speed on steep uphill climbs. I also manage the speed on steep descents.

I use CC as much as possible. I seem to have no ability to maintain a constant speed. Speeding tickets are the results. CC greatly reduces that problem.

I wish you good luck and happy trails ahead!

Flat lands its on. I hit the hills I Peddle it.

I think its better to build up a little speed down hill and lug up the hill.
