2011 Camry (auto) tow dolly question

My 2011 Camry has the locked steering and putting the ignition in the ACC position that will unlock the steering it looks like the only thing running off the battery is the radio and the clock. I can turn off the radio so it looks like the clock is the only thing putting any draw on the battery and I would think that would be almost nothing. Anyone with a late model Camry (Auto) using a tow dolly and if so what are you doing?

Well I don't have a Camry but which dolly are you using? And I assuming the car is front wheel drive? If the dolly has the swivel pan or steering you don't need to leave the steering unlocked.

I won't address the dolly issue, however it is not necessary to leave the ignition in ACC to unlock the steering. Most all Asian imports built since 2009 model year do not require it. Simply turn the key to the ON position, then turn it to the OFF position, DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY. The steering will remain unlocked till the key is removed from the ignition.

Thanks lllkrob. That works. Obviously my tow dolly doesn't have a swivel pan or I wouldn't need to have the steering unlocked. The Camry owners manual didn't have anything about this listed that I could find.
Thanks again.
