NO, NO, NO! The steering wheel MUST be in the unlocked position -- the front wheels MUST be able to turn side-to-side when the coach turns -- meaning the ignition key must be turned to whatever position (normally first position) allows the steering wheel to turn. Many cars require a fuse to be pulled to keep the car battery from draining. Mine just requires me to turn off the radio. No idea what the Edge requires at that point.

We've towed our 2007 Edge over 18,000 miles with no problems.
As AFChap said, DO NOT restrict the steering wheel in any manner.

Unless you have the keyless ignition, which I can't speak to, the sequence for the Edge is to put the gear selector in Neutral before turning off the engine. Then turn the key back as far as it will go (you won't be able to remove the key).
No need to do anything more other than install the auxiliary braking system (if you use a 'Brake in the box' system).

Happy motoring.
