Really doesn't matter HOW you get to the correct gear to hold your speed in equilibrium. This can vary by make, model and year of chassis/vehicle.

The important this in that you DO!

Thank you to everyone for their advice. It will be well used.
Sorry for not giving more detail... 2018 24 ft C Class, Four Winds. Driving various grades last summer and the unit sounded like it was revving to high but maybe that's how it should sound. Like I said, still new to driving anything bigger than a car.
Stay Safe... Paul

I thought that our 2015 E-450 revving too high at times, then I learned that it is programed so that it cannot rev too high.

Daughter was descending a steep hill in Northern New Mexico in our 2017 E-450 V-10 MH. Tow Haul mode. Tapped brake for downshift. Engine revved and the Check Engine Light came on. All gauges were good, etc. I purchased a code reader at O'Reilly's Auto in Taos and the fault was a few Engine Misfires. Cleared the codes and it never happened again.
