I have been towing these things for a while now and was wondering if you should disconnect the axles?. The tow bar works really well and I usually put it in neutral for just close tows but I am going on about a 2-3 hour drive so I need to know if I should just disconnect the axles on the outside??

A manual you can tow in for ever no problem. Auto's do not like to be towed for long and that is with any car.

yeah once in nutral it is fine. Yet you should disconnect the axles at the wheel, 1 so the tranny doesn't get the oil hot, and the extra wear on the diferntial.

so yes you can do it both ways. just your preferance
