How to Dolly Tow a Front Wheel Drive Vehicle with Automatic Transmission


do i put the transmission in neutral or park to tow it on a dolly?


Expert Reply:

When towing a front wheel drive car on a tow dolly like the RoadMaster Tow Dolly # RM-2050-1 you want to put the transmission in park, secure the wheels with the wheel nets, and be sure to have the emergency brake OFF prior to towing. You will want to check your vehicle owners manual for any specific instruction on tow dolly use. Some vehicles will require a steering wheel stabilizer like The Club Pedal-to-Wheel Vehicle Lock # WICL303RED.

If using the RoadMaster Tow Dolly like # RM-2050-1, you will need to connect the wiring to a trailer connector compatible with your vehicle like the Pollak # PK12706 for 7-way trailer connectors. I've attached a video to assist.
