another reason to tow in neutral

http://board.moparts.org/ubbthreads/...page=0#2181833

This picture and text was posted to a message board 11-28-05 by a dealer in Reno, NV.



A customer had his SportTrack towed into our shop this morning. He was towing his SportTrack behind his Motorhome "Coach" for about 50 miles before he noticed a problem. There appeared to be a lot of sparks coming from his SportTrack. There was only one small problem, when he got his SportTrack all setup behind the motorhome he forgot to take the trans out of park. Yep he had been towing it for the last 50 miles in park. The tires were gone and the rims were half gone,must of also wore down part of the axle housing to because it was leaking. Don't know how the trans is yet.

How could they not notice that. Lucky it wasn't towed alot further or there might be just the tow rope dangling behind when they got there lol.
