...as long as it's doin' the towin'~been told by experts that the transmission will be unhappy, even if placed in neutral, my thinking is this is nonsense, can do neutral till the cow's come home-

Automatic or stick shift transmission? Is there a neutral position on the transfer case selector? The best way to tow it is to remove the drivelines from the front and rear differentials yokes, tape the ujoints around the cups, Wire up the drivelines up under the body away from anything moving and with enough tension towards the transfer case to keep them from falling out causing fluid leakage. Or spend the bucks and get a driveline disconnect device for both front and rear. Just my 2 cents worth.

Should not be so half-cocked with this SERIOUS issue, if you are towing a relatively short distance, no prob. in my estimation, but the correct way is a flat-bed hauler~ just thought I'd CYA on this one!

...still not convinced that towin' in neutral won't work! what will heat up?...nothing, it does heat up we've got problems! my twenty-five cents worth~

I would check the owners manual, the dealer and a Dodge forum full of owners. Maybe even a RV forum. I did find a RV towing guide from a site that sells vehicle tow bars. (http://www.readybrake.com/towing- guide.html). They have a Ready Brake Fit List (http://www.readybrake.com/fitlist.html) that shows a Duragngo.
