Ford's Pro Trailer Backup Assist
Has anyone out there actually tried out an F150 with the Pro Trailer Backup Assist??
First of all you you have to take 4 measurements so that the truck knows exactly how much junk it has attached to its trunk.
1)Distance from the truck's license plate to the hitch (will a Hensley cause trouble?)
2)Distance from the hitch to the front of the trailer
3)Distance from the backup camera lens to the centre of the sticker (Ford supplies these for you to use)
4)Distance from the tailgate to the censer of the trailer's axle
Then you enter all this information into the screen and you are ready to go.
Has anyone made it past this to try it out? Just wondering if our Airstreams have some strange measurement that will not compute and the whole system will not work for us.
Practice makes perfect and watching this on a video with a small boat trailer and in a parking lot…it sure looks awesome!
Or..is it a complete waste of money??
