new to the "Toad" experience

Hi, have always used a dolly to bring along out toad but purchased a 2006 Ford Taurus SEL equipped with a Remco axle disconnect.
Excited about flat towing but need some advice....such as..
When flat towing do I leave the car in neutral ?
do I leave the ignition on so steering is unlocked.
Getting a RVi3 braking system and does this have enough power to apply the brakes without the engine running?
ok, lets start with that...lol
appreciate any and all info supplied

Your best bet would be to check the Remco website or contact them for the proper procedure, but with most toweds the transmission is placed in neutral with the key left in the 'steering wheel unlocked' position.

Hi Bob! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I agree that you should call Remco for that info. Yes, the braking system is designed to apply the brakes without the vehicle running! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Since you have the Remco Axle disconnect I would think the transmission would stay in Park.
