Towing a Trailblazer

We are new to RVing and have a 2000 Georgie Boy, 30 ft. I will need to tow my 2007 trailblazer. The book says a 4 wheel drive can be towed with all wheels on the ground. My question is that since my Trailblazer is selectable 4 wheel drive, do I put it in 4 wheel drive, then in neutral before towing? Also, what do I do about lights on the Trailblazer while being towed?

A Trailblazer is what I tow. Look at the owners manual. It has instructions on how to put the transfer case into neutral. Once the case is in neutral, you put it in park and away you go. It is a great vehicle to tow. No pulling fuses, no leaving the key in, no battery issues. I did wire the tail lights separately.

Like Winepress says, follow the instructions in the owners manual.

If the Trailblazer is like other GM 4WD vehicles, you simultaneously press and hold 2 of the 4WD selector buttons (I forget which 2) until the neutral light comes on. The vehicle is towed with the transmission in park.

On the key position and pulling fuses - check the manual. Some model years have a steering lock and must be towed with the ignition switch in the ACC position. In that case, a fuse usually must be pulled to prevent the odometer from accumulating mileage and to keep the battery from running down. Some vehicles do not have a steering lock and can be towed with the ignition switch off, in which case you shouldn't have to pull any fuses.

Hi Bill-Sandy C,
Welcome to iRV2. I tow a GMC ENVOY which is a twin of the Trail Blazer. The instruction manual will provide the instructions for towing the vehicle. Consider making sure your coach and hitch are rated to handle the Trail Blazer's weight. The street weight of my ENVOY is 5300 lbs.

We tow an 04 Trailblazer. The tow bracket was easy to install, and I put a separate bulb in the taillights.
