Hello I will help you with your question,

Yews, you can tow in neutral with the key in the first position to unlock the steering wheel AND remove the IOD fuse from the fuse panel to prevent battery drain while towing.

Will you install an accessory braking device or use the tow vehicle brakes only?

Jeep towing brakes already installed

OK, if they press the pedal then you should also remove the M1 fuse to prevent the vehicle lights from coming on unless you are providing power to the Jeep from the tow vehicle to run them

I have a full towing package that provides wiring harness and power from RV

Great, I would just pull the IOD fuse up out of its holder during towing then and press it back in when you are ready to drive.
