They are installing my base plates today and we are trying to do a work around. I know you can do a disconnect switch, but Air Force one needs the battery side on the car to operate. The lights run off the motorhome.
I kind-a just answered another thread in the same fashion. The smartest move you could make here is, travel to your local dealer for GMC/Chevy and, be guided by the OWNERS MANUAL for the particular truck you're interested in towing. You see, there's quite often, changes in prepping a truck for towing, from year to year. And, the newer the truck, the more electronics are involved in the operation of the truck. And, that includes things that effected drastically by disconnecting a battery or, not disconnecting it.
The discussion of towing a '13 and up GMC or Silverado has been talked about quite a few times on here and, many folks are not to keen on disconnecting the battery on the later models, especially since they towed a bit older one and had no such operation when prepping for towing. It's not the end of the world if you have to but, if so, then do find out WHY it's necessary. I've been told it's primarily because of the electronic components of the power steering. But, I've never had a reason to confirm that. Good luck.
