Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

End of the saga: I took the 2013 JGC to the local RV repair facility to have the Roadmaster Auto battery Disconnect installed. They do a large number of towbar installations. They told me they had...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Bingo! I finally got someone (Brenda) at Chrysler Customer Care who checked with their tech support (82K?) and she emailed me this:

Case #: 23129433"This vehicle should not be equipped with a...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

More data: I called Chrysler Customer Assistance again 877-426-5337 and told her of the discussions in this forum. I also told her we had exhausted technical support from dealers and that some of us...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Could you tell if the Jeep computer turned on while towing with the switch off and battery connected? That was an earlier post, I think. I'm having a Roadmaster automatic disconnect installed Friday....

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

My current plan: I'm going to have a Roadmaster 765 Automatic Battery Disconnect installed. It disconnects the toad battery when the motorhome lights are turned on, so it can be controlled from the...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I called Hitching Post. They have something called Battery Brain Gold that mounts in the positive battery lead and disconnects it if you push a button or if the voltage gets below a certain value....

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I plan on at least hassling the dealer over selling me what I wouldn't have bought if I'd known the manual he showed me was wrong. Except for this, we love the Jeep. This is my 4th Jeep and we've...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I think next I'm going to tow the 2013 Jeep with the ignition OFF and the battery connected and see what happens with the mileage. I'll let you know what happens.

Here's a question: if the...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I just got some fairly good news. I disconnected my 2013 JGC battery for 14 hours, and when I reconnected it all the settings were still there. Homelink, seat position, radio, EVIC. So if I add an...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Interesting. I wonder if their "auxiliary" power lead can be connected to the radio, evic, computer, etc to preserve settings? Looks like a cheaper solution that may be easier to install under the...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I disconnected the battery on my new 2013 JGC for 2 minutes and did NOT lose my settings (seat position, Homelink, radio resets, evic). Hopefully, that is true for longer periods.

Also, found...
