Question about 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 2WD

1 Answer

I tow my 2008 GMC 1500 behind my motorhome. I put the trans in neutral to tow but when I want to put it back in gear it won't "click" back in until it sits for as long as an hour. I have replaced the switch that puts it in neutral but the problem has not been remedied.

How do i use the neutral safety switch? In order to tow the Jimmy behind a motor home.


We'll if your taking a long trip I think for safety reasons remove the drive shaft put a plastic around the back York of the transmission with a big rubber ban or black tape then replace it what you get there because if the trans kits in to gear while the drive shaft is on you could burn it nor worth it it's easy to remove 4 bolts good luck

I own a 2006 Duramax Diesel 2500, with Allison Transmission and would like to know if I can tow this truck behind a Motorhome? Is there anything special I need to do?


Sounds like you should tow the motorhome with the 2500!!

seriously though, if it's a 4X4 make sure the front axle is not engaged, otherwise just make sure tranny is in neutral

just to be safe, check OM or nearest Allison warranty shop for advice

I'd be more worried about the motorhome drivetrain pulling that beast.....

How do i tow a 2006 mazda6 behind a motorhome


You'll have to put it on a dolly. Automatic transmissions do not take kindly to being towed because they don't get lubricated. The oil pump in an automatic trans runs off the input shaft, so the engine has to be running. Hope this helps.

Can the 2004 cavalier be flat towed behind a motorhome Towing procedures for 2004 cavalier behind Recreation Vehicle.


If it is automatic the quick is a two wheeled tow dolly. Or if that is not desirable then a RV repair shop can recommend a towing package that will disengage the torque converter in the transmission. Either way is about 1K.

I have a 2003 GMC Envoy, trans slipping that I have been towing


Low fluid can cause slipping. (depends upon how low) Most manufacturers post "safe" tow speeds. These are generally ignored. (not good). I recommend towing with driveshafts removed and where driveshaft has a "slip yoke" you install a yoke from a scrapyard and wire it to the tailshaft so it stays in place (keeps oil in and dirt out) Although you can't just detach the tow-bar and drive, it eliminates any possibility of trans damage, since the transmission cannot turn. (most use oil from pump to keep gearsets cool...when towing, pump is not pumping and over time and distance it can damage trans internals.)
Hope your problem is just low fluid and not a rebuild...keep in mind what I said though.
