wow- that must be a big motor home- is the MKX on a trailer or just flat towed? The battery is just dead or is draining for some reason- try a new battery, or just pull that big rig into a Lincoln dealer- it sounds like you have the ways and means-

In the motor home or theMKX?

I have the same issue towing a 2012 MKX. LINCOLN says nothing in its owner Manuel other than what we are doing. The dealer claims we should run a power line from the RV to the battery, but the base plate installer said this will burn the battery out. Another dealer said to tow the car in neutral while running, while another dealer said this would ruin the transmission. In other words no dealer seems to know what's wrong or how to fix it.
