Default Towing

I've got a 2000 CC DS. It has no run/tow switch. If I need to tow it, what do I need to do?

Is it a high speed tow or a low speed tow? Or better yet how fast do you expect to be going?

Low speed I reckon 5 - 10 mph. But for info what would be different for 25 mph?

Heat generation, thermal stress, reverse lashing of the gears, etc....

If it is a short distance, absolutely, but for a long distance, you could be creating issues for your self.

It comes down to how far, how often, and how long....

So if my cart had an issue in the neighborhood, it would be feasible to hook up a tow strap and pull it behind my Jeep foe a couple of miles at 5-10 mph with no worries?

Do I leave the power off and the F/R switch in neutral (straight up)?

I wouldn't expect any problems with that setup.

Definitely so as to ensure nothing gets energized with the switch on.
