If you have electric or electric assist steering that may be the reason.
I have a 2016 Colorado and it has to have the battery disconnected otherwise you can damage the electric steering - nothing to do with draining the battery.
FYI, for you with Electric Steering. FCA is having issues with Death Wobble on their Cherokee due to NOT having the Electric Steering on while being Flat Towed. They have now created a Patch to have it on so you have some positive reinforcement on the steering rack while being towed.
If you all of a sudden notice your TOAD wobbling behind you then you too have the Death Wobble and will need to contact whoever designed the TOAD to get some sort of fix. (Basically the front wheels start going from side to side and the only way to stop it is to come to a complete stop.) It shakes the MH violently.
