Good info james, I was considering a lube pump but I just ran out of original manufacture warranty and now on extended warranty. I callead and asked some "what if questions" and they specifically said that if there was a failure and there was a pump installed it could be cause to void coverage. Kind of a delimma on what to do.

if you have a ford ESP protection plan, the transmission should be covered with the pump installed. If it is an aftermarket warranty, it is up to them on how they want to cover the parts. I would get it writing though that they do not want a pump installed to cover the transmission if there was a flat tow failure. If it is ESP, tell them to reference TSB 12-11-03.

Another thing that I have not tried or tested was using a remote start to start the vehicle when towing every couple of hours. This way you do not need to stop. The remote start should be able to start and stop the engine. However, some mileage will accumulate and not sure if it will start in neutral and if a speed signal is being generated.

Decided to go with a tow dolly. Found a used Master Tow with surge brakesthat had only been used a couple times for $500.
