RE: R Vision

Good luck! We owned a R Vision hybid camper for many years in the early 2000s.

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

Thank you all for your insight and input.I have had the OEM controller installed by the dealer. After using my Ford points that you get for buying/leasing a vehicle it cost a little over $200. I lease the truck so I did not want to go splicing into the wiring. Also everything in this truck is computer controlled and I certainly don't want to screw anything up. I have in the past wired the entire brake and charging systems for my towing set up in my vehicles but these new ones are out of my league. Once again thank you all.

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

Mike134 I really didn't realize there were options like that. The price of that is not much less than the factory one. My original intention was to spend $20 or so to buy a pigtail and hookup my P3. Not being able to do that was not expected. My truck is a lease so I'd rather the dealership go poking around and taking things apart.

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

Bobsallyh you are probably right. I am getting "subscription notices" all the time. Whatever happened to just putting gas in it,changing the oil and treating it to a good hand wax every now and then? Man this truck is needy:R

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

Mike134 and Ivylog you are correct that the harness is there but you can't hook anything but the OEM to it. No adapter exists and the trucks computer will not recognize it,so it won't work.Everthing for the trailer brake system goes through the computer. I have installed all my other controllers in the past but this truck is a lease so I'm not going to mess with it. I guess that is the cost of driving a shiny new truck these days. And $50 bucks to install is a smoking good price. Here in upstate NY it's 3 times that.

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

Fisherman, I did not crawl under the dash (I was looking for a starting point).I checked on line to see what the plug end might look like but ran into so much conflicting information. The tekonsha website says there is no harness,Ford says there is no harness available yet the e-trailer website(referenced by enblethen) says"it's right here and shows a picture. The picture they reference is not that of a 2022. Sooo there is my confusion. In the end I have made an appointment to have one installed and are going to use "points" to help soften the blow.If nothing else I want to warn those who are buying a truck without a factory controller that they will need one and can't just plug one they have in.

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

I have been searching for a brake controller connecting wire for my new truck so I can hook up my Prodegy 3 controller and guess what.....I can't. I have to buy an OEM controller and have it flashed to the computer$400.When I looked online there were so many conflicting fitments so I called the dealership. The truck came with a hitch and a 4/7 pin connector soooo you would think if you HAD to have THEIR controller it would already be there.I bought one off the lot in January so I did not spec it but come on Ford...really?? Am I right in thinking if it has a 7 pin it should already have the controller as part of that package...or am I just becoming a cranky old man?

RE: Cooking surfaces and tools, What's your favorite to use!

I carry a Weber 2000,a 2 burner coleman propane stove,and 2 coleman propane skillets and a cast iron dutch oven. I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE the propane skillets but they haven't made them in years. I keep looking for them but they usually want a fortune for them on ebay and such.

RE: Outdoor Games

My adult son is all about the cornhole game. For a long time have played Polish Horseshoes. It is a washer game played with a 3 holed board. We also play Brewshoes which is played with a hula hoop around a 5 gallon bucket. You throw empty beer cans with pebbles or pennies in them. Ladderball is fun for the younger ones

RE: My new ride

Tvov,my heat selector is not that complicated. It has 4 push buttons to navigate it.One turns the system on,then vent,floor and defrost has a button. One thing I love is that you can have all three positions on a once.I am loving the gas mileage I am getting,19+ mpg mixed driving in cold weather and winter blend gas. I assume I will get better as the engine breaks in.Thanks for all the insight and information on the 2.7

RE: My new ride

MFL thanks for the help with picture stuff. You are absolutely right about not being Pops old 150. I had a 1988 and a 2003 150 in the past and this thing is like a spaceship compared to them. It rides so smooth and the 10 speed transmission is seamless. As far as the price goes....yeah it's more than I've ever spent but it is not cheap to repair aging vehicles anymore.

RE: My new ride

Thanks for the replys. I know a few people with the 3.5s that love them so its good to know the 2.7s are good too. Oldwizard1, I lucked out that the one I got had just arrived as an on the lot vehicle. I went to test drive a used truck but decided new was money better spent.Test drove it Friday and picked it up Saturday.I will post pictures when I figured it out

My new ride

Just brought home a 2022 F-150 STX with the 2.7 Ecoboost. It will be a little while before I will be towing with it but I'm excited to see how it does. My camper is around 4000 loaded so weight is not going be an issue. I can't believe all the tech stuff it has. I would be interested if anyone has any experience with this engine or truck.By the way this is my very first NEW vehicle!!https://i.imgur.com/dFYrp5Pl.jpg
