2017 Honda Pilot Touring AWD
We got our 2017 Honda Pilot back in the fall and just bought a 25 foot trailer. I figured there would be some difficulty off the bat accelerating and we kept our max speed at 65 miles per hour. I noticed that my RPMs were going through the roof when attempting to accelerate - especially going up hills ( I did anticipate this). I did some online searches and some suggestions were made in regards to using the paddle shifters, but I'm not sure if it's worth it to just keep my car in the regular driving gear and take it easy while accelerating. I understand that I have to take it easy with towing this trailer as it's just over 3,800 lbs. I'd appreciate any suggestions you guys may have on this. I don't want to ruin my transmission and just want to be as smart as I can with towing the trailer.
