Default Recreational Towing with 8 Speed

Can someone with an 8 speed 4X4 try to put their transfer case into and out of neutral following the manual?

In the Owners manual page 603 Item 5 "Turn Engine Off. On 8 speed transmissions the shifter will automatically select park when engine is turned off".

My engine will NOT turn off unless I select park first. I sent customer assistance an email asking about that and received an answer that did not address the question.

I have towed it 700 miles & it's a great toad.

Mine is the same. You cant turn if off unless it is in Park.

That's weird. The 2 times I forgot to shift into park before turning the key off, the truck shifted and the park indicator blinked after the truck turned off. I started it up to be sure and it was indeed in park.

Received a call from Ram engineering. Said the owners manual was in error and that you have to put it in park manually. Also noted that the online manual is different than the large printed manual.
