Can i tow a 2011 GMC sierra 1500 behind a motor home?
You can put a manual transmission vehicle into neutral (this doesn't work for automatic transmissions, and I'm not sure that GM offered the option for that model year), or you can put the transfer case into neutral in the case of a four wheel drive vehicle (manual transfer cases and the four button electric transfer cases offered by GM have a neutral position; the three button electric transfer cases do not), or, if neither of these conditions applies to your vehicle, you'll have to remove the driveshaft. Just trying to flat tow it without preparation is a great way to wreck a transmission.
There are three possible ways to flat tow this vehicle without
destroying your transmission:
- If it has a manual transmission (which I'm not sure if they were available on GM pickups for that MY), put it into neutral. This will not work with an automatic transmission.
- If it is a four wheel drive and has a transfer case with a neutral option (manual transfer cases and the four button electronic transfer cases do; three button electronic transfer cases do not), put that in the neutral position.
- If neither of those conditions are applicable to your vehicle, you'll have to remove the driveshaft.
