result to input box exceeds 2 decimal format - jQuery

input starting at "'reservation for room only"
1. 15.47
2. 25.26
3. 13.46
4. 1.51
5. 1.51
7. 27.8
The totalbox returns in long decimal format.
add a number to the 8th input box 16 or above and it snaps back to 2 digit format.
At all times the cal is accurate, just the display is the problem.

thx

try this instead:
<script>

        $(document).ready(function(){

                $("#totalBox").val(addBoxes());

                $(".charges").change(function(){
