Rollover sensors and dolly towing

We just got a 2022 Hyundai Kona FWD to dolly tow behind our Intent 26m. In the owners manual of the Kona it talks about leaving the car in accessory while towing to avoid the rollover sensors setting off the airbags thinking the car is going to rollover while towing. Leaving the car in accessory would not do the battery any good and taking off the negative side of the battery might delete all the presets - and there are a lot of presets in this car.
So...for those who dolly tow, does your car have the same issue with rollover sensors and is this a real issue or much ado about nothing?
Thanks for your thoughts,
Tom

For ME, the answer is to go with what the owner's manaul say, lets assume that they know best about their car. Especially since this doesn't seem to be a 'lawyer' warning that is just covering their butts, but actually telling you that something could go wrong.
I'd suggest that you look at getting a 12 volt power line back to the Kona to prevent the battery from running down.

This just points out how complicated modern vehicles are. So many electronics to be concerned with, how they will react with anything other than the pre-planned programming written by some geek in a lab who doesn't even have a driver's license and who thinks he is writing code for a video game, not a real hunk of steel rolling down the road.

I don’t understand their thinking. With the key in ACC the system is powered up. When the ignition is off the system is off and isn't operational!

I tried to jumper my AC pressure switch old school to fill with R134A threw a code for bad ECM on computer readout mini led screen and killed the motor. Put a pucker in my shorts but it was okay.

So turns out if you leave the ignition off the rollover sensors will not be active and all will be good for dolly towing. The manual just confused me but the dealer has cleared up the issue.
Thanks for your inputs,
Tom
