Bad idea. There are tow kits on the market that will lift the front end up off the ground, it uses a little hand crank winch that stows nicely in the RV, and hitch up to a regular trailer ball.

There is not a single automatic transmission out there that may be flat towed for more than a very few miles. The problem iss heat. With the engine off, the pump does not circulate the fluid through the cooler. Flat towing will burn out a transmission in very short order
