The Allison service people weren't too concerned about it.

Yes, both sides. Never occurred to me that only one would be acceptable. Some drivers will drop the driveshaft instead of pulling the axles. I think pulling the axles is better.

We were unfortunate to have an overheating problem on our 2009 Discovery Called CoachNet and they had a big rig tow out to us in about 45 minutes. We were off the freeway (I-40), in Milagro, NM. Driver, also the owner of the company, had me raise the front end of our coach using my leveling jacks so that he could slide the tow arm underneath. When he had completed his hookup, or so we thought, he had me retract my front leveling jacks. Unfortunately, he had not raised his tow arm up to the level of the front axle. Of course when I selected retract, the jacks immediately retracted, allowing the front of our coach to settle onto the tow arm, crushing the fiberglass. Very nice gentlemen, extremely apologetic and has agreed to take care of the damages when I get the coach fixed. Will see.
