Default Dinghy towing tacoma behind motorhome

Been a member since 2010, gathered lots of useful info. Thanks. 1st post. Here goes: have a 2009 Tacoma TRD off road, 4 wheel drive, automatic with a rear driveline disconnect at differential. Need to tow with all 4 wheels down. Previously towed with dolly, no problems just disconnect driveline, leave key in ignition in off position so steering wheel turns freely, transfer in 2 high and transmission in park. To tow with all 4 wheels on the pavement will do the same as before with dolly. Know with all 4 wheels on ground my question is it possible to do so if the electronic transfer case is in 2 high and transmission in neutral or park? I think this can be done but just checking. I know why "did I get rid of dolly"....well 625 pounds and parking it at rv sites ain't easy, getting old sucks. Not interested in trailer or dolly anymore but love tacoma. We always find a dirt road where our home is parked when traveling the country.

If the transfer case is in 2H and the rear drive is disconnected you should not have an issue as the driveline is disconnected from the transmission. The front and rear diffs will spin, but nothing should go back to the transfer case. The front diff disconnects on one side and the front drive shaft in the transfer case gets disconnected when you are in 2H.
