Correct, when towing, auto transmission is in Park, manual trans in any gear. When taking transfer case in or out of neutral, transmission should be in Neutral (auto or manual), per manual. Don't think this was OPs question?

Engine running while stationary and trans in neutral, if you try to shift Tcase out of neutral you will grind gears, per manual, engine off during this operation.
