Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I'm an independent contractor here at Just Answer.

Is the heat output about 140 degrees?

Is the blower speed and air flow out of the vents correct?

Are you getting moisture on the inside of the glass?

Thanks for asking your question and letting me try to help you.

Not sure about output temp but with minus 25 degree Celsius outside air temperature , the inside temp is as selected , normally 21 or 22 degrees Celsius.
Blower speed is very good and I think correct. On full manual defrost flow is to the windshield with some out the side window vents
Unusual amount of moisture on all glass. Had the Durango for 6 winters with no issues using automatic control system.
I turned on the rear passenger heat full with high rear blower high with slightly better results but still can't see out rear windows.

When using defrost the AC compressor should be running to cool the evaporator so all air flow into the cab first goes through the evaporator to remove the moisture from the air, then it gets heated. Since your having a moisture issue inside. It can be the compressor not running or it can be snow on your feet causing to much moisture in the cab. Heated moisture results in steam. Steam settles and makes condensation on something cold like glass.

Seldom get much snow inside. I'll check the compressor. The AC was working well this fall. Can I get back to you tomorrow?
