According to what I've read in the owner's manual, your Edge can indeed be flat towed if the specific procedures listed in the owner's manual are followed precisely. To flat tow your Edge, hook up to the motorhome then press and hold the brake to the floor. Start the vehicle and shift into Neutral with the brake pedal still pressed then turn off the vehicle. On a keyless start equipped vehicle, push the keyless start button one to shut off. If the vehicle has an ignition key, turn the vehicle off by turning the ignition key past the accessory position. The key position is between the accessory and off positions. Disconnect the negative battery terminal. A quick disconnect is available as part # RM-766. The manual goes on to say that you should not exceed 65 mph while flat towing and that the battery terminal should be reconnected and the engine ran at the beginning of each day for at least 5 minutes. Repeat every 6 hours. With the engine running and your foot on the brake, shift the transmission into drive, then reverse before returning it to neutral.
