Transmission fluid?

Anybody change the transmission fluid? I know the manual only says to inspect it. Am only at 40K miles but I towed a pop-up about 5 times a year and donít like the fact you can't even check it.

I called the dealership on this and they said with the transmission it has its good for life. But they did say if you do a lot of towing you should change it as 60K. They also said transfer case has to be done every 30k.
