Flat towing a MB Sprinter

Anyone out there flat towing a Sprinter van? I'm getting ready to start towing mine, had the remco driveline disconnect installed and tow bar attached. My question is do I need to pull any fuses before towing to conserve battery or anything? MB doesn't recommend flat towing so they have no info or support.

Here's a link to a thread about a fellow that is towing a Sprinter van full of his shop equipment, almost 10,000 lbs total with van and tools. He's using a driveshaft disconnect.

A little depends on what you're towing it with, what type of braking system you're using and how long a day you put in. If the only going a couple of hundred miles a day, I wouldn't worry about the battery. If your braking system draws its power from the battery, you may want to run a charging line from the motorhome. This isn't difficult and will prevent a discharged battery. Be sure to turn off the radio and heater fan.
