Check it's not a faulty ignition switch and you are removing the key in the auxiliary position?

I assume that the DVD player is fused, hopefully, so I would suggest to remove it, or just disconnect the DVD player to see if that's the one cause the trouble.

the dvd gets power from the radio I bet the radio itself is causing the drain seen it a few times.

Hi
unplug the fuel heater and retry see if it blows again but should be unrelated, filter housing can short out. Is your DVD player a factory unit or a mopar unit or after market? single or 6 disc changer? (Mopar unit will say mopar on the remote) You should also have an RB3 sat nav radio yes? I agree with Chrysler Tech and it will most likely be the radio at fault.

Hi
On the fuel lift pump by the tank. I am sure this is the same fuse that is the voltage sense for the PCM so will also affect the charging. You can check this because if it is you will see the headlamp flicker when at idle and lights on.
