Question Towing chevy 2500hd two wheel drive

Hi all, hopefully someone here can answer a question for me. We recently upgraded to a 40 diesel pusher from a fifth wheel. We now have the towing vehicle which is paid for, a 2005 chevy 2500hd, gas, two wheel drive, remaining. Instead of having to buy another vehicle to tow, I was trying to validate whether or not the 2500hd can be towed behind the pusher. Any input here??/

No it can not be towed. If you had a 4x4 you could. You will have to trailer it.

I think you can tow it, but you will need to use a driveshaft disconnect device, and use a brake device in the truck, All the parts are available through Blue Ox and other brands of towing equipment. You should have a minimum of 10k capacity on the MH, and determine the steering lock system used on your truck. Be careful not to overload the MH!

Towing 2x4 truck

Do your research before making the decision on towing your truck.

We tow a 2010 1500 Silverado Extended Cab two wheel drive with all wheels down. It is towed by a 2005 Kountry Star DP, 330 hp isc 8.3 Cummins.

A drive shaft disconnect was installed on the factory 83" aluminum drive shaft. Originally we were told that the disconnect could not be installed on a 83" long drive shaft or aluminum drive shaft.

Southwest Drive Shaft in Yuma, AZ is a factory authorized installer and they installed ours in 2010. The installation was very professional and there has not been any problems.

I am very pleased and would do it again.

If you are willing to use a drive shaft disconnect, check the Remco web site for info.
