No, it was my first rodeo towing with the Atlas. I thought about the Sport Mode, but was also wondering about the other 4Motion modes too..
Will try it next time thanks

I have an e-pro too and loving it! Can you let me know what rise you have on your ball mount? And which sway bar do you recommend?

We tow a 2018 Airstream Basecamp with our 2019 V6 SE Atlas with the factory hitch. Dry weight 2,585 lbs.; GVWR 3,500 lbs; hitch weight 410 lbs

We had no issues driving into the mountains or on the gravel roads. Unfortunately, we have only had two outings this year. I find it tows better than my 2012 V6 Ford Explorer XLT did.

towed 3500 dry / 4700 gross apex nano 193bhs. used a wd hitch with tension bars lowered for minumum stress on the vehicle chassis. two days into the trip got the front assist not available and acc stopped working

dealer wanted to charge $500+tax to align and calibrate the cameras. took it to the tire shop and they found rear alignment was out pretty bad but after alignment, they could not clear the front assist error. front assist error eventually went out on its own few days after the alignment so not sure what it was.

i didn't check the alignment before towing but seems like more than a coincidence. may want to have alignment checked after towing a heavy trailer that put stress on rear suspension. other than that no issues with towing and power felt adequate. no sway keeping at 65 on the far right lane on i75 with trucks passing on the middle lane.
