That's the way my Nissan is. No overdrive switch, just TOW/HAUL switch that changes shift points.

Press once for tow/haul then if it still wants to "hunt" for gears press the T/H button a second time. this will turn off O/D and allow you to run in 3rd.

I Have The Ford F-150 5.4 V8 And Tow With Od Off . Towing 9500 Lbs And It Does Just Great. Doesn't Loose Much Speed An Hills Either. It Is The Recommended Way When Towing Heavy Loads. Gas Mileage Not Really That Bad. Better To Be Safe Than Sorry. Towing In Od Could Burn Up Tranny Or Cost You Your Vacation. Read Your Owners Manual And It Should Tell You.

I have an 06 Ram Hemi Quad cab auto. 2whl. dr., and I HAD a coleman pop up. When towing this, I left the trans.in overdrive without any problems.
HOWEVER; I traded in my pop up on a 08 Flagstaff V-lite, 30 footer, and it needs the tow/haul mode to pull it, as it is MUCH heavier than the pop up. I figure it's about 6500 lbs. loaded. And I live in Florida. Just got back from a 400 miler, and overdrive would bog down the motor and slowly lose speed, until i switched back to tow/haul.
