I did a search on this and came up with several previous threads. RemCo seems to be the only game in town when it comes to drive shaft disconnects. Are there others that anyone here is using?

TIA!

I've never heard of another brand and the lack of responses to your query suggests there may be none. Remco builds good products and standa behind them, so perhaps there is little opportunity for a competitor in this relatively small market.

I suspect you are searching for a commercial, remote control disconnect. I don't know of any others than Remco.

There is an alternative, do-it-yourself alternative which is to remove the driveshaft each time, or at least disconnect the driveshaft at the pumpkin end and tie the driveshaft up out of the the way. Not quick and requires crawling around, but once you've done it a few times it gets faster.

Hey, whatever happened to those Warn locking hubs which were in the 4WD's in the 50's and 60's? (Am I dating myself?) They would seem to be the answer to enable one to tow ALL 4WD's. Wouldn't that be wonderful?
