2011 hyundai elantra toad

Towing 2011 Hyundai Elantra on an ACME EZE-Tow. Leave the key on to unlock steering wheel. Have to stop every two hours or so to start car and charge battery. I have heard the accessory fuse can be unplugged to eliminatethis probem and leave steeringwheel unlocked. Does anyone have a similar vehicle and what do you do?

Why are you having to leave the key on to unlock the steering? I've had two dollies, one a swivel plate and the other has steering wheels. Both have said to lock the steering and have the trans in park (front wheel drive vehicles)

The EZE-Tow instructions state if you have a locking steering wheel to leave it unlocked.

Are you sure you have to leave the key in accessory position to unlock the steering? A lot of Asian imports since 2008 do not require this to be done. Try this, insert key, turn to on, turn back to off, do not remove key. Check steering to see if it stays unlocked while key remains in ignition in the off position.

OK, that's different than our two have been. Didn't realize ACME said that.
