Re: What AWD mode do I use on boat ramp
Not a boat ramp, but similar in terms of the physics at play:
- Yesterday I was towing a 3,000 pound trailer and my RL had a lot of people and gear inside.
-Got to the trail, had to go pretty far into the trail to offload my sxs trailer.
- First big hill - big rocks, steep, very loose sand. Again, pulling trailer, too.
- Put the truck on "L", and eased onto the throttle. Felt front tires start to spin, then the truck sorted it out and applied traction where there was traction to be had. Truck gradually pulled itself up the hill and over the obstacles.
I think if I can do that on loose sand and rock, pulling a heavy load up a very steep hill, you should be fine on a cement boat ramp. If you start spinning, just let the truck's electronics figure it out. I can more or less assure you that the truck will do it in normal mode. Just shift to "L" would be my advice.
