Probably not. Having said that check your owners' manual. It will state under some heading like "towing your vehicle 4 wheels down" . It will say yes or no and what the procedure is if it says yes. If it says no you can go to a company like Remco Industries and they will be able to set you up with disconnects and coolers etc for the right price (for them!)

I think your max towing capacity for your rv is only 5000 lbs....your 2500 Sub will be over that amount easily.

As far as the Sub is concerned, if the 4x4 transfer case has a neutral position, it should be towable.

I don't think this combination would be a good idea.
