Cruise Control pulling trailer



On relatively flat terain, pulling a semi-light trailer, is it ok to use cruise-control? I'm pulling a 4500lb trailer with a 94 chevy suburban 1500 (I also pull with my 86 Chevy pickup)<br>Thanks.<br><p><font size="1">Edited by: Ian

I would use it as long as you are towing in drive,if you want to tow in OD,which isnt recommended,I would leave it off,and drive easy so as to keep the lockup torque convertor engaged.If it cant pull lockup in OD easily,leave it in Drive,its way better for the trans.<p>----------<br>John D<br>
