Well, this has kept me fairly busy. Any idea if there is a manual available online for the RA4 or8.4" UConnect?

Nice...I didn't think I could have a completely "flat" loading floor with the full center console...but apparently you can. Of course, those directions are about as clear as mud, but it looks like there's a button somewhere that allows the armrest piece to flip over or tilt/slid or something both protecting the vinyl, and allowing a level loading floor.
The release button is on the bottom (near the floor) at the rear of the console. It allows the lid to be flipped forward (towards the front row). Very easy to do once you know the release is there.

I don't recall what the load capacity of the console is, but its not bearing a ton of weight since any flat load would be spread across the rear if the seats, etc too.

One Year, at least on the JGC so I can only assume they are doing the same.

Also to clarify my prior post on UConnect Manual. I was more suggesting that there have been a lot of changes in functionality leading up to the start of UConnect in the Durangos.

Re: 2014 Durango - Features and Changes

In looking at the maintenance schedule for the 2014 Durango compared to the 2013 Durango, I noticed that the spark plug replacement interval for the Hemi increased from 30,000 miles for the 2013 to 100,000 miles for the 2014. Good News!

It's always been 100k on the SRT Hemi engines. Well at least the 6.1.
