Sorry, it's not what I meant, I actually meant the HVAC TSB, has that been applied?

No it hasn't had the 10000 service yet so I guess they will do it then. I never had the problems others had with the hot & cold sides, just that it defaults to 21 degrees .

Christ you could miss seeing several children of various colours with that! I hope the photo is making it look worse than it is.

Very similar to mine. Do you have that item in the Uconnect? Perhaps Bluey has a different camera.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee information - Australia

Those poor reverse cam images are pathetic. God knows why they now use a different camera than what they used in the MY11-MY13's.
It would be interesting to see if anyone who has a good relationship with a spare parts dept at a dealer, can find out why they changed.
Surely it couldn't be because of a handful of dollars.

Well to put it quite simply that's just plain f###ed. My wife's $28 k rav 4 looks better. Mine is being installed next week I will upload a pic then not expecting anything different though.

I have a dual battery and the isolator cuts in at 13.2 V but the Jeep rarely seems to go above 13V which means there is no charge going to the second battery or the van.

The isolator does have an override but there is always the risk of forgetting to turn it off and at only 13V, it takes a long time to add any significant charge to the battery.

Any suggestions.
I just used a relay instead of an isolator so that charging happens when the engine is running. The power line for the torch in the boot is perfect for this.
