What do I have to do regarding the key thing while towing?
I'm way more familiar with older Jeeps and what's needed on them for prep for towing but, the very first thing I'd do if I were you is, GO TO THE OWNERS MANUAL and read what IT says for towing. Many vehicles that are authorized for flat towing, sometimes change from year to year, in prep operations. That means, what someone else does in theirs, even a '14 model, could quite possibly be different than prepping yours for towing.
But, off the top of my head, based on just what you stated, if your key is in the "Off" position and, your steering is still free, using logic, it stands to reason that nothing more is needed IN THAT DEPARTMENT. But, you'll still need to place the transfer case in neutral and, if it's an automatic, it goes into Park. If it's a stick, in the old days, as in TJs, YJs etc., it went into 2nd gear (just to stop any "sympathetic" spinning of any gears that weren't lubed while towing).
Once that's done, you're good to go. But again, check that owners manual for your specific vehicle and be guided by what it states.
