RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

In the video they show a device that is bolted to the fifth wheel and plugs into a receptacle in the bed. Yep, my 2021 F150 has a wired yaw sensor that I mounted on the trailer and then when to a large parking lot to calibrate it. I have heard however that they are going back to the old system. I use mine from time to time, however it is an insult to my truck driving years back in the late 1970's.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Here's some more intel... Link Dash basically is the same as my 14th gen 2021 F150 with the 12" display, two glove boxes, etc.

RE: What Upgrades needed for a 3/4 ton pickup

I would not tow a 14K 5th wheel in Western States without a diesel that has an exhaust brake. Or in the Eastern part of the country that has some steep down hills.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Kinda still looks like my '17 DRW. Sync 4 and the 12" display are nice.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Looks the same to me? Except for the camouflage. Is it supposed to be a new body style? I believe the body panels will be all new like the 2020 F150 update, but will look very similar to the current truck. Also the interior should have the same F150 updates as well. I thought the 2021 F150 was the change, not the 2020. 2021 are first of the 14th gen F150's. Aren't you the chief Ford guy?

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Now that I think this thru a bit, there's no SWv19.5s mad in mass right now. Rims would be an issue with this option. Everything else should be an easy put together. Assuming a steel wheel option, should not be too hard. Outer rim is same as a dw. Need the center part designed, weld to outer rim... Aluminum, would be another issue. Marty And we all know what a smooth ride the 19.5'a at that rating supply, not!

RE: Point to ponder, hornets nest stir

Are there any SRW with more that a rear axle rating of 7,000 lbs? When I towed a large 16K fifth wheel, I picked one with a 2435 dry pin weight. Which I verified when the manufacturer. Loaded for snowbirding/full timing for two years. My rear axle scaled weight was 6750 with a 7,000 RGAWR. Truck was a 2015 RAM 3500 4x4 Laramie with the heavier Aisin tranny. No generator or W/D in the trailer. I see many SRW trucks towing large trailers that I know have put the trailer over the truck rear axle/tire ratings. My combined weight was 24,500 lbs.

RE: I am the truck killer!

On the other hand the 2.7l has proven extremely reliable and capable. I’m recommending them to anyone looking for a newer GM full size truck. Thanks Jerem I have a little 2.7L twin turbo 1/2T. When thinking I needed a pickup to replace my 2020 Ford Edge ST (2.7L twin turbo) I researched GM and RAM and turned them both down(GM lifter issues and Hemi cam issues) and up with a 2021 F150 2.7L. Nice truck. Ford 3.5 EB have cam phaser problems. Perhaps not as significant as the other brands but a problem indeed. I believe the 2.7L Ecoboost is noted as more reliable than the 3.5 Ecoboost. The 10 speed tranny is a bit of an over kill, for the torquey little engine.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

I think the OP needs to decide which is of greater importance to them, owning an SUV or traveling with 6 adults plus 4 (or more) grandchildren in the same vehicle. Until someone identifies a 10 passenger SUV, the two are mutually exclusive. How about an “out of the box” idea? I know someone who uses a minibus to tow their TT to events. This one should have no issues pulling the OPs TT and transport 6 adults and 4+ grandchildren. Ford F-550 Super Duty 4x4 DRW 14 Passenger Minibus “Grandpa’s Party Bus” No pickup, SUV or van should be towing a TT with 10 bodies in the TV. The bus suggestion makes sense. OR TWO or THREE VEHICLES on each trip!

RE: New Ride

You will love the 12" display in the center stack. Ford did an excellent job of making it look like it belongs there!

RE: 2022 F-150 Can Not install aftermarket brake controller!!!!!

You want the Ford controller, the reason they have to flash the PCM is because of the anti-sway software. The computer uses input from all suspension and powertrain sensors to detect sway and apply the TT brakes as needed, something you will never get with an aftermarket unit, as good as the P3 is. I agree you would think if you have the trailer connector it would have the controller...maybe the chip shortage played a factor and it got shipped without it? At any rate, with the $$ you have wrapped up in that new truck, spend a few $$ extra to get the Ford controller and have it programmed in, you will never gat the level of performance otherwise. Write the check and enjoy your new truck! Side note, did you see the video posted here of another forum member taking his 7200 lb TT up Monteagle grade in TN with his little 2.7? Really impressive performance! Hard to say, but it pulled better than my old Suburban with the 8.1L! My 2021 2.7 is faster than my old 1967 Camaro SS/RS 350. 325HP 400 LB/FT. "It's got Twins!" On spring trip North presently..

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

I have a 2021 F150 XLT 302a with IBC and Pro Trailer Assist. I had it in neighbors car port and walked over and disconnected the trailer and got the alarm just last week. I carry my fob in a belt pouch that I made. If I stick my hand in the door and unlock it, or disconnect the trailer with the motor running(I do that a lot) no alarm. I like the future as I tow my Can Am Spyder three wheel motorcycle back and forth between Arizona and Washington spring and fall.

RE: Looking for power?

I think I like the new Toyota powertrain the best for a half ton. Haven't driven one, that's just based on a few reviews and Toyota's reputation. I would much rather have a GMC with a 6.2 vs the new turbo plagued ugly as sin Toyota Tundra. Having said that I know someone who has a new 2021 Tahoe that had to have the lifters replaced due to a surging problem this year. I am driving a Ford F150 because the GM lifter issues and Hemi cam issues.

RE: Looking for power?

Amazing the power they can squeeze out of those 3.5 L V6 engines. And my little 2.7L Ecoboost puts down 400 lb ft of torque and 310 HP! In the 2020 Edge ST I had it was 335 HP and 385 lb ft

RE: Bought a second truck. Last week I bought this 1976 Ford F-250 4-wd, gratefully it isn't a highboy. I really think I stole it after searching for another truck. Body and paint a bit rough but very little to almost no rust. Once I put my camper on my other truck I no longer have a PU. I've only taken the camper off of my truck once since March and I'll be using thru the end of November. The truck needs a lot. Its been sitting outside for nearly 20 years. Started and driven a few miles about once a year. It has a 390 2-bbl out of 1966 Mercury Monterey. Runs pretty good after giving it a tuneup. Replaced a bunch of stuff like the grill, battery tray, dash pad, seat cover, brake/clutch pedal pads and some other misc stuff. Still have lots to go. My new tires arrived Monday so I took some steel wool to the Dodge chrome wheels and then had the tires mounted and balanced. I like it. :B First thing I said to myself was, those on Dodge RAM wheels!

RE: Not a good week for Ford

That is a **** fast response and recall by FORD! 28 warranty claims, one complaint to Ford, and one to NHTSA! My F150 forum has talked about IBC in the eight months I have owned it. It is more or less an acknowledge issue. And now I have a recall to fix the programming in it. recalls and not bad. Problems that are not addressed a timely manner are an issue.

RE: Hemi to be replaced by inline six?

And yes, they did make several size cylinders but bet more 71 than all others combined US Navy had a conzillion of them. WWII landing crafts had two. The blocks are symmetrical along with many other components. You can build a mirror image left hand turning 6-71 with less than one hand of different parks. Take the fuel pump, take a plug out of each side and reverse the check ball and spring and put to two plugs back in. I corrected and earlier statement. There was not a 8 cylinder head. LOL, more than once a driver would power out, kick clutch in just before it stops and exhaust starts blowing out the air cleaner! We kept two boards and rags one for each end of the intake air box in the engine room to snuff out a run away engine.
