Towing a 2010 Ford Edge....advice?
We will be towing a 2010 Ford Edge Front Wheel Drive (not a 2011 or 2012).
The manual says put shift in neutral, put switch in Accessory position, and don't tow over 65. Starting Edge at every fuel stop.
Being not sure how far is a fuel stop with a "new to us" motor home I plan to start it 3 times a day for a 300-400 mile daily trip.
Any way I have seen some different things for the switch position.
Here's the particulars.....
1-Switch has 4 positions OFF -- Accessory -- ON -- Start
2-The wheel seems to only lock when the key is removed
3-If you put the shift in neutral (which you have to do with the switch on) you cannot remove the key. (it is locked in there)
4-If you put the shift in neutral you can move the key to the OFF position and the wheel seems to NOT lock.
My question is can I put the key in the OFF position or do I have to use the Accessory position. I have heard things about battery going dead in the Accessory position.
I think I read it somewhere that I could use the back or OFF position but can't find the post.
What does anyone think????????(remember it is a 2010 Ford Edge FWD)
