Jeep Grand Cherokee and supplemental brake system

Instructions for Cherokee say to disconnect battery. But Patriot supplement brake system says to plug in for power.

So - how to power the brake system while having power off to everything else?

You would have to wire the Patriot direct to the battery, and hook that wiring up when you disconnect the main ( Jeep ) power.

You shouldn't have to disconnect the battery.

What year is your Grand?

If it's a 2014 there is a thread in this forum that ends up stating that the 2014 Jeep manual is incorrect.

The GC is not mine, checking for my brother, but I expect it is a 2014 since it was bought new in the past 4 months.

You could possibly use one of these Amazon.com: Jump Starters: Automotive. I have used one with a Brake Buddy successfully.

I found the thread about disconnecting the battery...I was off on the year, it was about a 2013 and it was on another Forum.
