Towing a Honda Civic 4 wheels down

I have a Country Coach and want to tow a 2000 Honda Civic automatic transmission with 4 wheels down. Is this possible?

Most likely would require a lube pump for the transmission.

You can tow a Honda Civic 4 down. Just check the owners manual. It will tell you that you can tow it. It has the same motor/transmission as the CRV.

You will need to shift, while running, the transmission through all the FORWARD gears and then into NEUTRAL. Let engine idle for 5 minutes, turn key toward off as far as it will go. Leave the shifter in NEUTRAL. Do not under any circumstances shift into REVERSE as this would ruin the transmission. You will also need to check which fuse to pull to prevent your battery running down or install a charge line and breaker.

Google items if not clear.

Not on a Honda.
Even Remco states they're towable four down and, as a result, they don't make a lube pump for any Honda. And yes I know Remco no longer owns the lube pump business as they sold it.
burfurd's instructions are correct although I'd add: be sure parking brake is off. You can probably figure out how I know!
