Transmission question on 2019 Acadia

I'm getting ready to tow my 2019 Acadia for the first time and I think I have just about everything figured out except for how to check on the transmission fluid level. The owners manual says to check it before towing, but I can't find a dipstick for it and the manual says take it to the dealer to have it checked. I can't imagine taking it to the dealer every time we're about to tow. Do I just not worry about it and assume it's fine as long as I don't have a warning light on? Has anyone figured out how to check it for piece of mind while towing?

You're out of luck. Your car doesn't have a transmission dip stick. Another ploy by auto makers to force you to go to a dealer.

According to your owners manual, If the trans isn't leaking then don't worry about having the oil checked at your dealer.
