Not sure if this is something unique to the hybrid or applies to other jeep products, but I am planning to sleep in my jeep while traveling cross country. I’ve realized that if I put the jeep in park and keep the engine running to keep some airflow going, the jeep shuts off after maybe 45 minutes to an hour? Anyone know if there’s a way to disable this feature?

Seems incredibly dangerous to sleep in the Jeep with engine running. A 12v fan would be a much safer option.

Even for Tesla it took years to create camp mode.
What you are looking for is a extended acc mode with AC on. The problem I see with "engine on" even if just in EV mode is that all the pumps are running unnecessarily. AC cooling alone on low can possibly run 20hr. Heating not so much, since it uses resistive elements.
Joe from ZAutomotive may be able to add this feature to Tazer JL if requested enough.

This video
shows that if you disconnect the door wiring, like if you were taking the doors off, it stops it from shutting off after 30 minutes.
