Towing with 3500 6.7 AUTO RAM

When you guys tow heavy with the 68RFE Do you shift it through the gears or let it do its thing? and What have you guys found to work best?

I did my first tow with my 07 this past weekend My 5th wheel is 15,500 to 16,000 So far it seems to do much better getting the load rolling if i hit 2nd @20 mph then 3ed at 30-35 MPH and 4th 40-45 mph. is this what you guys do?
My tranny temps seem good really only went to 153 towing with outside air @ 56* But it did get it to 180* when i was backing in my camp site.

I really liked the way it pulled, But Im in the market for some air bags now
