Default automatic car wash netural or 4x4 high

For the automatic car washes where you put your front wheel into the convaer belt, do you just put the tranny in neutral or should i flip the button as well and put the transfer case in neutral (I only ask because if your pulling a 4x4 behind a motor home you turn your dial to neutral and since all four of my wheels are being pushed along in the same manor at the car wash do I do this to?)

Looking for an answer. (We all know about the auto scarwashes and what they can do to our paint jobs, extras, and recently the one guys rim) I'm asking about the gear. Thanks.

Tranny in neutral, transfer case in 2wd. It is such a short distance it won't matter.

Never had an issue with my local wash. You pull in and put it in neutral, there is never a reason to put your transfer case in neutral for a car wash.

the only time you throw the driveshaft in nuetral is when you are towing becaus ethe shaft is spinning as the wheels spin at highspeeds, in a car was you are barely doing a 1/2 mile an hour and he short distance is minimal so just puting the truck into neutral is all you need to do.
