When you tow your truck do you put the transmission in Neutral or Park and does the key need to be left in the ignition and turned to position 1 or 2?
I believe if you disconnect the drive shaft first, the vehicle might move slightly, or a lot, which might not work out to well. If you have the towed vehicle properly aligned behind the MH , depending on what type of towbar you're using, you should be able to extend or retract the tow bar arms to make the connection.
The procedure for getting my truck ready to tow (which could be quite different from your procedure) is to start with hooking up my towbar, safety chains, breakaway cable and electrical cable. I then go into the truck, turn on the two position off/on toggle switch for the brakes ( I have the stay n play system), with the vehicle turned on, put the transmission in neutral , turn the key all the way to the left, pull the cable to disengage the drive shaft, shift into park and leave the key in the ignition.
