Does the RAV4 EV stay in N when it is in that gear position and it is fully turned off? Does the parking pawl auto engage?
There is not an adjustable gear box in a RAV4EV.
There is a fixed reduction gearbox between the electric motor and the front axle with a ratio of 9.73:1
That one is _always_ "engaged"
When you "switch" to D/N/R/B you only tell the computer what you intend to do
The computer will only engage the electronics to
Accelerate/decelerate, do nothing, reverse, Accelerate/decelerate harder than in D
Only physical thing that happens is when you put it in P, that is when the parking pawl engages.
I never put my rav4ev in park, just switching it off automatically engages the parking pawl.
How do you leave the RAV4 EV in N when off?
Can you tow the RAV4 EV in N? I know in on you can though it will just regen while pulled. I think the manual says to tow it with the front wheels off the ground. Why? Is this because of the parking pawl? Would it cause damage to the motor?
I think you will need to power the rav4ev on, put in N, then tow it eg on a tow truck, switch off the rav4.
I don't think it will be ever a good idea to tow a rav4ev eg behind an RV. It is not "bad" for the motor afaik.
When it turns without high voltage power applied, there is no (over)heating issue or lack of oil pressure.
You should use a dolly to lift the front wheels like it says in the manual
