I have a 2015 Soul with a manual transmission, and the dealer even drove my Soul over to the local Camping World for them to install the baseplate and electrical wiring for me.
This is also mentioned specifically, on their web site in a technical bulletin.

Yeah, it is MANUAL. I honestly think my sales guy has no idea. I already got the car, so it is done.

We bought a 2016 KIA Soul today and will be towing it behind our MH with the sales and service managers OK. But the one thing they could not answer was how to set the key. Do you put it in ACC ? What about the battery?

This is what you do with the key:

1) Insert key in ignition and turn to ON
2) Turn key to OFF, DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY
3) Test that the steering lock is released by turning the steering wheel 180 degrees in each direction. With the ignition in the off position there will not be a drain on the battery.

The steering should be unlocked and will remain that way until the key is REMOVED from the ignition.
