^ exactly....for prolonged engine braking, choose S,it will hold gear, unless you start to accelerate and will auto shift UP as you approach redline, but at lower speeds and for engine breaking, it's the way to go!
Note that in S, if you come to a stop (say, for a STOP sign) you have to upshift out of first into second using the peddle shift paddle, or it will hold gear to the very top of the rev band!
Do a bit of driving while in S without a trailer and get the feel of how it drives in S mode.... familiarity boosts confidence.
