  1. 240V circuit installation cost

    2017+ Pacifica PHEV Hybrid Batteries And Charging
    1k is what I would have expected from a larger outfit. 150 feels low but 300 plus materials would be a fair price for a someone doing a side job, or one electrician that runs their own small business of just themselves.
  2. 240V circuit installation cost

    2017+ Pacifica PHEV Hybrid Batteries And Charging
    I dug up an e-mail from some work I had done a long time ago. I am in an expensive market but I paid 600 bucks for a new 20 amp circuit and breaker. This did involve fishing some wire through a wall about 10 ft, plus another 10 ft in an open part of the basement. Now looking at the breakdown...
  3. How widespread are issues with Pacifica

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    My 2018 Pacific is a year and a half old with 25k miles. About 5k of those miles are towing at close to max capacity. So far never had a single issue. Oil changes are closer to 7k miles, but that is about it.
  4. Phantom presses - Andriod Auto

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    This is worth trying, its a generic cable right now. At the very least I should eliminate as many external factors as possible.
  5. Phantom presses - Andriod Auto

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    The issue I have used to only happen every few months so I ignored it, but now its seems to happen more often. At least weekly. When I hook up my phone and load up andriod auto the screen starts "clicking" in random locations without any input from myself. This happens several times per second...
  6. Just finished 1500 mile road trip with a ~2800 lb popup camper.

    Towing
    Yes, except its been stated here multiple times that the tow package does not add anything to the rear suspension that would warent such a difference from an engineering perspective.

  8. 2017 Uconnect waste of money

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    Pretty much. Brand new car design, but 5 year old radio tech.
  9. Hitch wiring nightmare

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    You want to install this kit for the 4 pole connector. There is a video that walks you through the whole process. The 7 way is a little more complicated as you are only going to wire the 12V power wire to the battery and the ground wire to the car chassis. I then went with a wireless brake...
  10. Hitch wiring nightmare

    Chrysler Pacifica Minivan Issues And Problems
    The idea that it might be the trailer is an interesting one. I would rule that out first. I also installed my own 7 way plug but here is what I did. I first installed a 4 way adapter with a power module directly connected to the battery. I then installed a 7 way plug with its own direct...
  11. Just finished 1500 mile road trip with a ~2800 lb popup camper.

    Towing
    As the title says I just got back from a 1500 mile road trip through PA, NY, and parts of Canada, including some decent hills in the finger lakes area and upstate PA along US-15. Pacifica pulled like a champ. Some facts for those of you thinking about towing. - Total weight was 8300 lbs, so...
  12. Trailer light harness question... installing a hitch.

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    I have done both. I spliced wires because the kit was not available at the time. It is a bit of a pain. All the wires are bundled and taped together tightly. You have to unbundle them, figure out which one is which, and then splice wires. I ended up getting a new van a year later and used the...
  13. Class 2 Trailer Hitch Tongue Weight Limit

    Towing
    I have a ~2900 lb popup camper with a tongue weight between 250 and 300 lbs. The suspension already squats about 3 in with this setup. At 440lbs I would expect to bottom out the van so I would not recommend it. Even with a WDH you will be too high. Overall the rear suspension is my biggest...
  14. Why the reduced tow rating with aftermarket hitch?

    Towing
    I agree with @TomB985 and it is not the first time i have done so here. I tow a 2900 lb pop up and i only have two complaints. 1. Rear suspension sags more then i would like, but not enough to be dangrous. I thought rear suspension airbags would be out by now to fix this. However again the...
  15. 2018 Pacifica radio reboots

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    How often does it reboot? Mine reboots about once a week. Its annoying but you get used to it. From time to time the unit locks up and it must have a way to detect a lock up and reboots. I doubt a software reset will work. It might help in the short term, but while I love Uconnect 4 it is buggy.
  16. GVWR Verses Payload Issue

    Tires, Wheels and Suspension
    When they say cargo capacity they include people as cargo. So 1150 is the max total weight you can put on the suspension.
  17. 2020 Pacifica from rumors to reality

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    I doubt we will see a major refresh yet, mainly because the van is still as good if not better than the competition. Toyota is still using a very old platform and there is no reason to put out a new model before they do. Honda has a new model, but frankly it sucks. The people who buy a Honda are...
  18. GVWR Verses Payload Issue

    Tires, Wheels and Suspension
    The passenger issue has to do with legal seat belts so I would not worry about that. The curb weight is for a stock Pacifica without any options, including fuel, and may be for the base model. As an example you have 18in wheels which increases the curb weight. If the payload capacity on you...
  19. Realistic Tow Rating +/- 2600 lbs

    Towing
    The Pacifica engine is rated to 6200 lbs in the Dodge Durango and its the same engine so the V6 can more then handle that load. I can not comment on the transmission but it could likely handle it too. No way the Pacifica suspension can handle that tongue weight though. You would be dragging the...
  20. do you get a lot of value out of Apple CarPlay / Android Auto ?

    2017+ Chrysler Pacifica Minivan General Discussion
    To answer your question I can not imagine buying a car without Android Auto. It basically future proofs your car and ensures as Google / Apple add more features you get access to them. That said using my phone in a holder on the dash for maps actually puts the phone in a better location to view...
