Why Does Battery of Vehicle Need to Disconnect Sometimes when Flat Towing


Why do u need to disconnect battery power before towing


Expert Reply:

For a lot of vehicles you have to have the ignition in the ON or ACC position to unlock the steering wheel so that it can steer behind the vehicle flat towing it. Normally this would drain the battery fairly quickly so the solution is to unhook the battery with the ignition in the correct position to allow the wheels to steer and not drain the battery at the same time.

We have the Roadmaster battery disconnect kit part # RM-766 which will automatically disconnect the battery of the towed vehicle and charge the battery too.
