Default Driving cycle to clear permanent code

Can anyone tell me how to perform a "driving cycle" so that I can try to clear a permanent code? I believe, that just driving "normally" will eventually clear the code, but my normal driving for the next 2000 miles will be pulling a 40 foot 20,000 lb trailer, so not sure if I will be able to do what the system will expect for a "driving cycle" under those conditions. So, before I begin that trip, I'd like to try to see if I can clear the codes since I've hopefully fixed the problems, so if someone can suggest what constitutes a "driving cycle", I'd appreciate it. Pretty sure it involves 10 to 30 minutes of driving at around 45 MPH, plus some stop and go driving, but also pretty sure how this is all done kinda matters.
