Flat towing 1993 Dodge Dakota 4x4

I am buying a 1993 dodge dakota 4x4 with the automatic transmission and a 5.2 V8. I would like to tow it behind my motorhome. I was told you put the transfer case in neutral and the transmission in park and tow it that way. I hope it is right because I have pretty much bought the truck.
Thank you

That makes sense. The oil pump for the transfer case runs from the driveshaft, and the one for the trans runs from the engine. If you put the trans in neutral, then parts of it may be turning without lubrication.

Other things to watch on those trucks:
The electrical power goes through a splice near the battery and gets corroded.
Transmission lines tend to rust out near the tranny in salt country.

The rpm variation you are noticing is the torque converter slipping in and out of lockup. Most likely the torque converter clutch is failing, you will most likely need a new converter, if it's got a bunch of miles on it I'd probably freshen up the clutches while I had it out.
