Nothing will happen if the button gets bumped. The VC has quite a bit of bias and will actually drive the truck under light load.

Christo does sell a part time kit. It replaces the VC with a solid hub that effectively will remove the bias and leave you with a part time case. The downside is, as you know, all wheel drive ROCKS in the winter!!!!! The Part time kit also comes with AVM hubs which are (IMO) a serious downgrade to Aisens!

Yes, it's called the "part time kit."

Thanks UB I'm interested the idea of flat towing behind the motorhome would solve some problems for me. Any issues flat towing an 80 ?

Did you install the part-time kit (with your Aisens)?

And couldn't you just put it into 4 High in the winter when it snows?
