My 2004 Fleetwood Expedition has broken down and I am having it towed to a Cummins dealer on Monday.

 

Are there any cautions I should be aware of in regards to this process.

Thanks for any tips you can give me.

Make sure they index (mark) the U joint before disconnecting the driveshaft so it can be returned to its proper orientation.

See my post on your other posting.  Nothing has to be taken apart.  I just had mine towed on Monday to a shop 55 miles away.

I'd double check with Allison prior to doing anything.

The two posts are not contradictory.  If the coach is to be towed with rear wheels on the ground, the drive shaft has to be disconnected.

 

If loaded on a flatbed nothing needs to be disconnected.

Disconnect the drive shaft. It took two hours for the tow truck operator to get my U Joint disconnected but he knew he could not tow w/o doing it.
