Just wondering, you say you wired it for towing. May I ask, just exactly "how" did you wire it and set things up? I'm asking because I've wired (7) different Jeep wranglers for towing and all have worked just fine. But, all of those were older than yours. I'm lead to believe that the newer Jeep units are using a different wiring harness and what's called a "CAN BUSS" system. If so, wiring it in traditional ways can and will cause problems.
You see, I've not one of those that have a heart attack when tying into the factory wiring. I've ALWAYS used my stock tail lights in the Jeeps as toad lights and NEVER drilled any extra holes and added sockets and bulbs. But, as stated, utilizing that style of wiring in the later toads with CAN BUSS systems is not possible.
So, just wondering how you did your wiring and why you thought you'd need to go direct to the battery with the ground. I'm assuming you're talking about the ground from the pig tail, coming from the coach, correct? Just trying to help figure things out there with you.
