I tow a 23’ that weighs 6k loaded, with my 19 crew cab, short box. 95% of the time it’s great, I have a weight distribution hitch with integrated sway control, the other 5% I wish I had gone 3/4 ton. Not that it’s unsafe, just have to give it 110% of my focus and slow it down more than usual. I think ultimately it’s what your comfort and experience levels are.
I’ve noticed on newer fords that it acts as a puddle lamp, seen several that when the doors are opened the tailgate light comes on with rest of the puddle lamps. That would be a nice option to be able to select in the light program.
I run 45 cold, that’s what the installer recommended. I like the ride better, just stiff enough that it doesn’t feel like it wallows around, like it did with factory P metric tires. We run E rated on our F150s at work, that the City shop runs at 50. Whole different way of driving, we only get 20K out a set, but that’s double what get with P metric tires.
I do, helped get me an extra $3000 once when trading a vehicle. The dealer was adamant that our Volvo didn’t have a couple options, pulled out the window sticker, no more arguing. I am sure it was all part of the usual dealer BS but that ended it quickly.
On occasion mine fails to see my contacts, the phone is connected but when I try to make a call my contacts are not there, both by voice command and in favorites. When I make the call from phone it goes right to Bluetooth, but only the contacts phone number is displayed, not the contact. The other thing I get occasionally is it won’t recognize my voice commands to call a contact, but the favorites works fine. I would say 75% of the time it works fine, and it could just be learning or some outside noise is interfering.
With my single axle 22’ travel trailer which is 3000lbs dry, and I figure 1600lbs worth of gear and people I am averaging 11mpg. That’s mostly interstate at 70-75 mph, and pretty hilly, that’s based on two 200 mile round trips, with 70 miles of a bad head wind. So a little better than I expected, and I think with some more miles it might go up a hair.
It would be nice if they did like ford and Chrysler, just put it in the manual. Sure it’s a convoluted series of apply the parking brake, buckle/unbuckle the seat belt and something else, but they tell you how to do it. I sympathize, after you go to step out of the truck for 14th time and forget your seatbelt is on it sucks.
