Fuse disconnect for flat towing

Can anyone tell me what fuse needs to be pulled to flat tow ? I have a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo and I'm about to attempt to flat tow it once i have the base plate installed...I hear all kinds of things about pulling a fuse...Not sure why ? or which ?

1994 Fleetwood Flair 28 foot, towing a 1997 Isuzu rodeo, standard trans., I'll be using magnetic lights on the back of the toad.....understand I have to put the key in access. to free up the steering..put the car in neutral. I figure on putting the tranny through its gears every 400/500 miles or so just to lube the gears...

I guess my biggest question is " what fuse or fuses to pull ? " Manual says nothing about pulling fuses...thanx..

If you can't find the fuse to pull install a battery disconnect switch. I have a Buick Rendezvous and it doesn't have a fuse that I can pull, so I installed the disconnect switch. Works great...

Many cars, especially 90's vintage, did not need to have any fuse pulled to tow. More recent cars with lots more electronics often do, but still not all of them. Don't feel you need to pull a fuse just because somebody else does.

If your battery goes dead while towing, install a battery disconnect or a Toad Charge from LSL Products.

CAUTION: According to the Remco Towing website, your 1999 Rodeo needs a drive shaft disconnect to be towed 4-down. Failure to install a driveshaft disconnect will ruin your transmission before too long.
