Using cruise control while towing TT

I currently have a2014 Ford F150 Supercrew 5.0 4x4 with max tow package, that I picked up in July of 2017, I bought a 31ft TT last year. I used the tow/haul mode and never used the cruise control druing towing. The question i have is, am I able to use cruise control while in tow/haul mode and towing the TT on highways?

I dont have a F150 but I have used cruise control set at 65-70 on those extra long highways when traffic was not crazy.

If I didn't use the cruise, I'd be in jail. No reason not to except the normal reasons.

I was sceptical about using cruise control while in tow-haul mode but it worked beautifully and I wasn't tired when we arrived at our destination. I set mine at 63 mph, had good gas mileage, everything ran cool and we turned it off when we started into the mountains. One word of caution though. Turn it off in windy conditions or in hilly terrain or you will hear a loud sucking sound over the road or wind noise. That's your gas tank draining really fast!

I have the same truck and used cruise in tow haul mode on round trip from Tennessee to Yellowstone with no issues.

I use mine all the time - F350 DRW. Only issue I have with cruise is that I tend to like to slow down more for turns/curves and am always finding myself kicking it off.

Mountains and cruise control not as good as nearly flat or gentle grades...

I set mine and it just goes. I too find myself kicking it off sometimes.
