flat towing new liberty

Friend of mine just bought a new liberty and plans on flattowing behind motorhome. Dealer told him to put a battery disconnect in vehicle. I am just questioning why a battery disconnect would be needed. thanx. wnk.

You need to leave the key in the on position so the wheels remain unlocked. So a battery d/c keeps the battery from ending up dead when you get where you're going.

If your KK has steering lock then key must be in ON position which will drain the battery during the tow. So you need a battery disconnect.

However, IF your KK, like mine, does NOT have steering lock then you can turn key to OFF and remove. No battery drain so no need for battery disconnect. I have towed 240 plus miles this way in last month.

Every new vehicle is required by law to have a steering lock....
