I have just purchased a used Tow Dolly. Being a used unit that I bought from the 2nd owner, he did not have a owners manual. I have what I hope is not to ignorant of a question. I will be towing a front wheel drive Hyundai Accent. When I put my car on the dolly should I keep it in gear? Also do I leave the steering wheel lock on or do I disengage it?
Thanks

Mike,
Since the front drive wheels will be up on the dolly you should be able to leave it is park, steering lock engaged, and the hand-brake off to allow the rear wheels to roll freely.

Tow dollies are all pretty much similar in design and operation. In my business we rent out the Croft tow dollies. Click Here to check out a link on their website as to proper operation of a tow dolly. I'm sure the basics would apply to any brand. Be sure to check out page 2 as well.
