Jeep toad

Hi

I have a 1995 Jeep toad. It came with the RV we were told when we hooked it up all we need to do was put the transfer case in neutral. But when I looked at it more I found the steering wheel locks. From what I have read you need to keep it unlocked. So I emailed the guy I purchased it from and he said I did not have to unlock the wheel. So my question is do I need to unlock the steering wheel or not?
We came all the way from Florida with it lock
Thanks for all you help
Ron

The steering needs to be unlocked unless you want to drag the front of the Jeep around corners. I'm sure you wore the front tires when you pulled it in the locked position. Luckily you must have had them locked in the almost straight position.

The steering wheel must be unlocked.

Yep, that's what our '97 Jeep GC said in the manual.

All the previous posters have given you the correct answer. I would suggest taking a REAL close look at the front tires.
