I am not familiar with your setup, but I would not take any chances.......disconnect the driveshaft.......done, no worries.

The drive shaft is removable with just 2-4 bolts. Any tow truck operator should know how to do it if they've got a rig big enough to tow an RV. If you want an exact answer, check on the website for your particular brand of transmission.

I'm told an Allison World transmission is toast after 10 feet, disconnect the drive shaft or pull the axles.

thanks to everyone for getting back to me. I knew that III shouldn't tow it but was hoping someone knew some secret procedure.
