We just completed our first trip with our 2015 Cherokee Trailhawk. We had the MOPAR tow package installed by our dealer, and have a Blue Ox Tow bar and Patriot II aux brake system.. We hooked up and towed the jeep about 250 miles with no problem. When hooking up for the return trip, we somehow activated the "Safe Hold" feature of the electronic parking brake system, and destroyed the jeep's rear tires before we could safely pull over... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-wAQzybOI&feature=youtu.be According to Jeep, the safe hold system senses an unsafe condition and engages automatically, We must have created one of those unsafe conditions while shifting the transfer case to neutral. Once you set the start button to off, you no longer see any indication that the system is engaged. Obviously we need to move "Check Parking Brake " up a few steps on our checklist, and when possible, move the rig while someone watches the jeep rear wheels. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there any way to disable the system? .
From Fiat Chrysler: The 2019 Jeep Cherokee (4x4 models with two-speed power transfer unit) can be flat towed behind a motorhome. The vehicle does NOT require the Mopar flat tow wiring harness, which was developed for 2014-2018 models to prevent the wobble that sometimes occurred during flat towing. The owners manual can be found here: https://www.mopar.com/jeep/en-us/care/owners-manual.html Side note: A service bulletin issued on April 20, 2018, indicated that the Mopar flat tow wiring harness was needed for 2019 Cherokee. However, Fiat Chrysler has acknowledged that the service bulletin was in error.
