Re: transmission fluid

After 45 minutes of towing according to the owners manual.

Automatic Transmission
The DRIVE range can be selected when towing. However,
if frequent shifting occurs while in this range, the
TOW/HAUL mode (if equipped), or a lower gear range,
should be selected.
NOTE: Using the TOW/HAUL mode (if equipped) or
selecting a lower gear range (using the Electronic Range
Select (ERS) feature) while operating the vehicle under
heavy operating conditions, will improve performance
and extend transmission life by reducing excessive shifting
and heat buildup. This action will also provide better
engine braking.
The transmission fluid and filter should be changed if
you REGULARLY tow a trailer for more than 45 minutes
of continuous operation. Refer to “Maintenance Schedule”

for the proper maintenance intervals.

According to the "Maintenance Schedule".

64,000 miles: Change the automatic transmission fluid and filter(s) if using your vehicle for any of the following: police, taxi, fleet, or frequent trailer towing.

120,000: Change the automatic transmission fluid and filter

Re: transmission fluid

I recently towed a 26 foot long pontoon a total of about 10 miles with frequent backing and speeds of generally less than 50 mph. I kept the reading of the transmission temperature on my information center. The transmission temperature never varied more than a few degrees. I'm officially no longer worried about towing with the Jeep GC.
