Unless something is horrifically screwed up you're not in 5th, the display is just letting you know you have 5 gears available in tow-haul mode. If you use the +/- arrow on your shifter you can increase/decrease the number of gears available to suit your needs.

For example I would normally limit myself to 3 gears when driving around town not breaking 35-40mph.

I only use tow/haul on my Moose when I'm towing my boat on mountain roads.

Appreciate the help. I've been towing without it, but it's mostly flat where I live.

I use the tow/haul every time I pull my camper and I live in Minnesota where it's mostly flat. When you engage the tow/haul button you take away the MDS so you have all 8 cylinders and full power available to you while towing.
