    long term, it would be good, but the wife isn't ready to give up the runner yet. Once she does then Ill decide which gets kept, the truck or the runner. Maybe both...

    I'm a looooong way from him but it might be worth it. I was there for an hour and apparently the charge circuit fuses ARE installed but there is no relay, he said there are 3 fuses that are all installed for the tow connector and it is a non-replaceable relay (what??) that is part of the fuse panel itself. So they said he needs to put it on a tester. But more important things developed:

    THIS IS WHY I DON'T BUY ANYTHING BUT NEW... this morning I remote started and about 20 seconds later I heard my Ford Pass app ding, it says service is due... I'm like "What the fuck, these guys are trying to sell me service already?" so I ignored it and drove to work. At lunch I had to go to the dealer to do some paperwork (that was done incorrectly because it was almost fucking midnight that night) and they owe me an inspection sticker (again, couldn't get done at midnight) so I bring it to the service writer and hop out, go in to finish my paperwork. The service writer says "We can't give you a sticker with a CEL on" and I'm like WTF, it ain't got a CEL... then I remember the app this morning. So he says "I need to run the code before the sticker" and I say, "Well can you show me the fucking CEL because I'm obviously an idiot if I didn't notice it"- NO CEL is showing at all. He's like, "I swear it was there when I just drove it in!" So they run it, and find no codes, just a CEL, he says it's a SOFT CEL and I have to drive it for 100 miles before giving me a sticker.

    So I will have to wait until the CEL soft resets itself and then I'll go in and get my sticker and make them fucking replace the trailer connector or whatever because they have no clue about the trailer charge circuit.

    For whatever it's worth, I checked on what I have in the bag that came with my truck. It's a brake controller harness and a plug for the rear view camera harness in case you remove the tailgate. It makes me believe the trailer charging stuff was already installed in this truck just like my 2018. Only one of the trailers I had behind it had brakes and it didn't give me any warnings about not charging the trailer battery, but it's tough to be sure if it was or not.

    I didn't think a code that wasn't showing a CEL (pending code) could impact a sticker.

    EDIT: Unless they mean monitors aren't ready because the battery was disconnected or a code was cleared or something. That would explain the 100 mile thing.

    :rofl: modern vehicles, what fun!

    Do you have an OBD reader? Well worth it, I have a BT one - it's great. I know with some at least on the tacoma, I can read and set TPMS codes. I think I can do that with techstream, too, but for example I could get the codes from a truck that they're currently mounted on.

    I think you can do all that in forscan too. Also I think Ford is a loooot easier for dealing with TPMS, that was just an example of my recent use for it. But I have used it a few times on the tacoma for other stuff too.

    Way the F out there. Okidoki. If I end up as first it would be a while before I could get out there, not sure the next time I'm heading out to Canjo, probably sometime in the summer en route to Michigan :(

    I will have Forscan soon, as I am installing my trailer brake controller probably Thursday after work and I need to enable it through Forscan.

    No post guides on the log splitter? Usually the small trailers have them or have the ability to add them since they are difficult to see.

    Ok, I have watched 5 videos on Youtube about the 12 Volt Trailer Charge Circuit on my 50 Thousand Dollar 2020 Ford F-150 and every single one of them they have to cut the wire from the harness and install a relay for it, basically rewire the entire 12V charge circuit completely new, right from the battery with new components. What in the actual fuck is this fuckery?!

    So it appears the F150 is not meant to really tow any fucking thing other than a landscape trailer. Certainly not a camper trailer or even an enclosed with lights. It seems the charge circuit only comes on 250's and up. Unreal.

    Yikes... That type of crap is actually why I don't buy new, usually it all gets sorted out within the first 10-20k miles or so. Good luck with all that, hopefully they group their poop and get your truck sorted out.
    Since everyone else wanted to be 3rd, does that mean I can be 2nd place?


    Kidding, I have no use for those, just figured I'd take the opportunity to be a jackass since everyone was fighting over 3rd place... :anonymous:

    Damn, that's a pretty significant downgrade from even what my '13 had!

    I was rooting for another Super Duty owner on the Tacoma forum :stirthepot:

    Just sent you a PM with a thread from the Ford forum that may help. It seems to stem from the CanBus crap. Does your trailer have a battery on it?

    Yes, my trailer has a tiny 12v battery for the breakaway switch and brakes.

    I am now a member on the F150 forum and this is a huge shit show from what I see. And was made worse when they started selling this trailer backup knob bullshit. Apparently they use that circuit to run that little gem.

    I just started poking around the '15+ 150 forum and am finding some of the same. Seems there are many different build options, they really muddied the water with the electrical system, wholly fuck balls! My '13 was real simple, plug it in, turn it on, throw in a relay and boom, good to go.

    If your trailer's battery doesn't run the lights, the little LED's might not pull enough for the truck to recognize a draw and fire up that circuit. That's what I seem to be getting from the 'irreplaceable relay' talk.
