Mine is no longer under warranty, so I'm wondering what you said to Chrysler, etc. to see if I have any change of getting reimbursed for what is obviously a manufactures defect? I'm also concerned about mold, etc. because the dealership is not willing to do anything to the carpet, etc., especially since the warranty has expired. Am I SOL? How is this not a recall issue with it affecting so many cars for so long?!
I'm Having the same issues with my 2012, I noticed the sloshing sound over 2 months ago. took it to the dealer yesterday and they determined that the HVAC drain is the issue and is filling into the compartment under the drivers seat. my certified warranty denied the claim, saying its not that's covered. I've already paid $120 to diagnosis the problem not they want to charge me almost $700 to fix the issue. they want to remover the seats and the carpet, fix the line so it drains properly.

I had a very small area around the floor mat hook that was soaked. They had the drivers side seat removed and the carpet pulled up and will let the area dry out over the weekend.
I am having this same exact issue. Was it definitely caused by an AC line? my drivers side carpet is soaked and i pulled enough of the carpet back to see the rusty colored gallons of water sitting in the floorboards. i have heard the sloshing sound for two years and always thought it was the gas tank. Google more on this and you'll find multiple people who have the issue. Oh, and ever had an issue with your Quadra Lift if you have it? The QL control module is under the driver seat....just above where the water is in the floorboards. My jeep has been in 6 times now (just got it back yesterday) for quadra lift air suspension issues. Everything from removing all of the seat to look for kinked air lines to two new compressors. Chrysler covered both compressors which was awesome, but i am guessing this water issue that some are having is the culprite to some QL control modules going bad. Just my opinion. Now off to figure out how i get all of this water out of the bottom of my jeep. I'm not opposed to drilling a hole from underneath at this point to be honest...

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

OK, realize how serious this is, but I have to tell you a hilarious story.
Yesterday (friday), I was on the phone and so I had the radio off.
Company phone so NOT on the uconnect.
When I completed the call I was making a turn and heard the dreaded sloshing sound from somewhere on the right side of the truck.
Last night I search this and every other forum I could find about sloshing sounds in the JGC.
Woke up this morning with a plan, check under drivers seat, if wet most likely AC condensation (I just started using the AC day before yesterday), if wet under passenger seat likely sunroof drain, if wet in spare tire well, seal on wiring for back door.

So this morning I check all those locations, all are dry! Yet I clearly hear sloshing from somewhere on my right! Could it be the fuel tank baffles?
Nope, I filled up last night.

More searching, finally I look under the back seat.
My daughter had gone for a ride with me earlier in the week, I found, wrapped in a sweatshirt, her stainless steel vacuum water bottle!!
It was half full, and only made noise when the truck shook sideways!!
And like all the rest of the symptoms, could only be heard when everything was off in the cabin.
So, my story at least had a happy ending! Check for those loose water bottles!

That's hilarious. I wish mine would have been that simple. Not sure if I ever posted back but it ended up being the AC drain hose located behind the carpet on the driver side of the center console to the right of the gas peddle and toward the driver seat about 10". It had come loose and was draining a ton of condensation into the frame with no way out besides drying itself up. Chrysler paid for it as it could have been a health issue of not taken care of, and they fixed my quadra lift finally too after 8 times in the shop!

Re: Sloshing sound from under the car

I found my battery compartment and compartment under the drivers seat was full of water. I removed the rubber drain plugs and got about 1 gal out of the battery chamber
and 2 gallons out of the drivers side. I could not determine the source of the water. Then I checked the spare tire compartment and found about 3/4" of water level. All carpets were dry. Condensate drain was clear. Water sloshing noise is now gone.
