I'm sending my Tradesman in for the Air conditioning TSB tonight and I removed my Uconnect 12" Retrofit to avoid confusion at the dealership. When i put my Uconnect 5" back in the truck, I found out it works 100% with the CVPM I installed for the surround view sytem.

Man am I spoiled. I would need a pair of binoculars to see that tiny screen. Since the tradesman is a work truck, it's fine. I had a loaner when the dealer did the bed step and it was a 1500, but not a Tradesman. The radio was the smaller uconnect and was OK for the day but I missed my 12.1. Taking the truck in for the A/C TSB diagnosis today, but will not be leaving it for the work to be done. We have a scvheduled spring break trip to Prescott, AZ.. When we get back the parts should be waiting, assuming they don't come back "with no trouble found'" That would be a problem.

If they come back with no trouble found, refer to the TSB that clearly states. You Being there with a complaint IS THE DIAGNOSIS, and they are to repair it, PERIOD.

I hope they see it the same way. RamCares is already aware, so it should not be an issue. I am concerned about time for repair because we will be taking a trip in a week and a half. If they can get it done before that, it would be awesome.

For our farm work I bought 2020 tradesman and yes the 5” screen is driving me nutts, it makes me reconnect anytime I turn off engine, plus buttons r so dull ….. I gotta upgrade this stereo and speakers before I start singing to my cattle in frustration

would you be willing to share more info with me about your upgrade? I have the standard 5" screen in a '22 Tradesman and am wanting to upgrade to either an 8.4" or possibly 12".
