I have never flat towed a vehicle before. I have a 93 Saturn SL2 auto trans. I know that I do not have to pull fuses for this model year. What I want to know is do I lock the steering wheel or leave it to turn freely while towing?

The steering wheel should be unlocked to permit the front wheels to track to the motorhome's path. They won't turn a whole lot, but they need to turn some.

The key should be in whatever position is needed to unlock the steering wheek but still have as much of the car's electric system as possible turned off. Also set the dash vent system off/closed so that dust and exhaust behind the motorhome does not get sucked into the car. If there is a separate control for fresh air vs recirculate, set it to re-circulate.

If you do not already have a tow brake, I storngly recommend one for my safety as well as yours. Anything that helps stop the rig sooner is a GOOD idea!
