I've heard a couple horror stories on RV forums about flat towing a Focus w/ auto-trans, but I'm not sure those guys were following the rules to the letter. There are two cables going to the negative terminal, and it is apparently important to remove both.

I'm planning to go with a manual trans just in case though. I'm waiting for Blue Ox to come up with a baseplate for the ST, which they hope to have in the next 30-60 days!
