How effective is it?

does it have to manually be turned on and off ? Never had a super duty and wondering how it compares

I have a 2013 Dodge 5500 work truck and it works amazing. I use auto mode all the time and never have to turn it off or on. Controlling the gears of the automatic On inclines and knowing it’s shifting points/tendencies helps.

It works. You’ll have to turn it on every time you drive. It’s no where near as effective as your rams exhaust brake.

needs to be selected manually. i haven't had to use it yet. Seems like grade shifting in tow haul is pretty effective. For me at least so far
