Out of curiosity, what is the advantage of turning it off. Does it save fuel or ride better or something else?
If I turned it off on a flat road I might not remember to run it back on when I hit a hill.
Also, when tow haul mode is engaged the transmission will automatically downshift when I use the brakes going down a hill. It does this very smoothly.
Unless I am traveling north or south in the central valley, I will not be on a flat road for more than an hour. But you apparently have long flat roads where you live.
