[QUOTE=Indy Glenn;2479017]Interested with your experience with flat towing a 2014 Ford Explorer Limited 4 Wheel Drive vehicle.
I understand running the Ford engine for the transmission fluid to circulate, but why does the ignition have to stay in the Accessory position? I have asked the Ford dealer where I bought it and did not get an answer. Is there a by-pass for this?
What electric brake did you install?
We are new to RVing and have 2 vehicles to choose to tag along. One is a small Chevy Spark at 2600lbs and needs a tow dolly the 2nd is the Ford Explorer and weighs about 4600lbs.
Some considerations are towing 2600 versus 4600lbs. Our motor home has a 5000lb rated hitch.
From reading, flat towing is much easier than the dolly.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
Glenn, the key can not be removed with the transmission in neutral, that is why it has to be in acc.
I have been using older SMI four wire brake and now I am setting up to tow our Flex using SMI Air force one, made in southern Indiana.
If you have push button start it will be a little different. I believe there is a special procedure to put transfer case in neutral for towing. If you turn key off or start button off it will remove transfer case from neutral.
