Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

The one I cancelled was red and I was looking forward to getting it. I too have had Jeeps since 1999 and have towed probably a 100K as well. Where will you put the manual disconnect? The manual...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

I think that there is a battery backup for the radio and memory settings according to my mechanic that will usually last 2-3 hours. According to the service manger of a jeep dealer there is no way to...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

There is a start button on the 2012 I believe. The 2014 towing procedure is completely different than anything before. It even includes starting the car every 24 hours to reposition the air level...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Thanks for your info. I have absolutely no info on the 2014 and assume that the service manager for Crystal has info that I have not been able to acess. I am familiar with the dealer as I bought a...

Here are some questions that I posed to the service manager of a large Jeep Dealer in Jacksonville Florida prior to cancelling my order for a 2013 summit Jeep. It contains his answers. I hope this...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

One more thing to consider when you disconnect the battery for rmore than a couple of hours are your radio and memory seat presets. I believe they are erased but not for sure. I also would consider...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

So you are going to do this 80 or more times each summer. I leave Florida in June and will arrive back usually in October. I connect and disconnect at least 40 times. I have found that if...

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing

Re: 2013 GC QuadtracII - Recreational Towing
