I don't strap it down. My understanding is that in the down position the engine can kick back if it encounters an obstruction under way unless it is in reverse gear. If for some reason it hit something like a speed ramp while being towed it would minimise damage allowing it to do that.
I can't see any way it would flip up trimmed down unless it hit something.
Having towed it quite a few times now, I'm more concerned about the way the engine moves laterally when cornering. Moving the resistance lever on the engine to full isn't enough to stop it so I'm considering strapping the engine to one side of the transom or trailer.... still trying to work out the best way
