2013 GMC Terrain

I just bought a new 2013 Terrain and I am told to remove fuse #32 before towing. I have a couple questions for those of you that tow this vehicle. 1) What does fuse # 32 do?? 2) What else do I have to do to tow this vehicle i.e. Leave key in it?, put it in neutral?, ????
Please tell me the procedure you use to prepare to tow it..

Thanks in advance..

From the owners manual, Page 10-70:

To tow the vehicle from the front with all four wheels on the ground:

1. Position the vehicle that will be towed and secure it to the towing vehicle.
2. Turn the ignition key to ON/RUN.
3. Shift the transmission to N (Neutral).
4. Turn the ignition key to ACC/ACCESSORY.
5. Turn all accessories off.
6. To prevent the battery from draining while the vehicle is being towed, remove fuse 32, the Discrete Logic Ignition Switch fuse, from the instrument panel fuse block and store it in a safe location. See Instrument
Panel Fuse Block on page 10‑35.

Notice: If the vehicle is towed without performing each of the steps listed under “Dinghy Towing,” the automatic transmission could be damaged.
Be sure to follow all steps of the dinghy towing procedure prior to and after towing the vehicle.

Notice: If 105 km/h (65 mph) is exceeded while towing the vehicle, it could be damaged. Never exceed 105 km/h (65 mph) while towing the vehicle.

Once the destination has been reached:
1. Set the parking brake.
2. Shift the transmission to P (Park).
3. Turn the ignition key to LOCK/OFF.
4. Install fuse 32, the Discrete Logic Ignition Switch fuse. See Instrument Panel Fuse Block on page 10‑35.
5. Start the engine and let it idle for more than three minutes before driving the vehicle.
Notice: Too much or too little fluid can damage the transmission. Be sure that the transmission fluid is at the proper level before towing with all four
wheels on the ground.
Notice: Do not tow a vehicle with the front drive wheels on the
ground if one of the front tires is a compact spare tire. Towing with two different tire sizes on the front of the vehicle can cause severe damage to the transmission.

Hope that helps...

If you need 12v power for an auxiliary brake, you will have to plug into the outlet in the cargo area. The others will shut off automatically after a certain time period.

Thanks for the replies. I would guess that I need to leave the key in the ignition because it doesn't come out if it is on Accessory. I will be running wiring to the Terrain from the coach for the power so I don't need any supplied by the Terrain. I also purchased a fuse bypass (RM7651
Roadmaster FuseMaster Fuse Bypass - 13" - 20-Amp Mini-Fuse) to eliminate having to remove the fuse all the the time. I think things are starting to come together.... Thanks again for your help.
