Recreational towing

Recreational towing  - Tires, Wheels and Loading - Lincoln MKZ Owners Manual - Lincoln MKZ

Follow these guidelines if you have a need for recreational (RV) towing.

An example of recreational towing would be towing your vehicle behind a motor home. These guidelines are designed to ensure that your transmission is not damaged.

Note: Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle. Refer to the Climate Controls chapter for more information.

In case of a roadside emergency with a disabled vehicle, please refer to Wrecker towing in the Roadside Emergencies chapter.

These guidelines are designed to prevent damage to your vehicle after it is hooked-up to the RV or tow dolly.

Front-wheel drive (FWD) vehicles can’t be towed with the front drive wheels on the ground or transmission damage may occur. It is recommended to tow your vehicle with the front drive wheels on a dolly or with all four wheels off the ground on a car-hauling trailer.

All-wheel drive (AWD) vehicles can’t be towed with any wheels on the ground, as vehicle or transmission damage may occur. It is recommended to tow your vehicle with all four wheels off the ground such as when using a car-hauling trailer. Otherwise, no recreational towing is permitted.
