That button will normally delays the shift points to provide more power for towing. Sometimes it keeps the rig out of overdrive.

We have seen a lot of Jeeps being flat towed. Apparently there are no problems.

The absolute funniest looking tow package we have seen (several times even) has been a 40+ foot diesel pusher pulling a smart car.

Hey Heavy .... Joe's right. That tow button is for towing a trailer, etc.. with the Jeep. Doesn't apply when you're hauling it behind the MH.

Liberty seems to be a popular toad. If your manual says 4 down, then it should be fine. Some of the older 2 wheel drive models required a trailer.
Motorhome magazine publishes a towing guide every year. Following this link .... http://www.motorhome.com/download-dinghy-guides/
and look for your model year.
