Re: Flat Towing
If a 4 x 4 (auto trans), and if equipped with a neutral on the 2 x, 4 lo,4 hi controls, press the 2 x and the 4 hi buttons at the same time, until the neutral light blinks and comes on. With the tranny in Park, the rig is ready to tow. A fuse can be pulled under the hood, to eliminate any mileage build-up.
If you have a 2 wd, a manual trans, or a unit without the neutral light, u r on your own....who knows??????
I have a 99 blazer and an 08 colorado and both are set up to be towed behind the motorhome. The blazer has maybe 5000 miles of towing under its belt, w/o any problems.
I think with a 2 wd and manual transmission, one just has to put the trans in neutral and make sure the front wheels arent locked by steering or ignition switch.
