    Yes it is. Page 69.

    "In Trailer Mode, the following Model X features are disabled:

    • Autosteer.
    • Autopark.
    • Traffic-Aware Cruise Control increases the following distance from the car in front of you.
    • Park Assist (rear).
    • Smart Air Suspension will not make speed-based adjustments from STANDARD to LOW.
    •Smart Air Suspension does not make automatic height adjustments based on saved location-based settings.
    •Side collision warnings are active but automatic steering interventions are disabled.

    In addition, the braking force provided by Automatic Emergency Braking (see Collision Avoidance Assist on page 95) is signifcantly limited."
