Unhappy Ford backup assist sticker placement

Hi all,
I just got my new 2017 FC 25' to go with my 2016 Ford F-150, with the new trailer backup assist feature. Manual tells you to attach a special sticker (provided) horizontally on one Y-hitch arm in a zone 7" to 22" back from the hitch ball. Problem is, there is one of the propane tanks and the cover taking up this zone. Have any Ford F-150 & Airstream owners with backup assist run into this problem AND SOLVED IT?? Love to hear from you.

I have a 27fb international and a 2016 f150 with pro trailer back up assist. I did not install the sticker myself, CanAm did when I picked up my new AS. There is a small corner of the sticker that is under the tank cover but it does not seem to be a problem. The available space on a 25ft might not be the same.

I have the same truck and will have the same AS shortly. I am very curious to hear whether there is a resolution of this issue.

Just saw a post on the F150 Forum:

They confirmed to me that it can be placed either horizontally or vertically as long as it is within their "green zone" of 7" to 22".

Hope this helps someone...

Hi, I helped a neighbor install his sticker; It went on the curb side and a small corner of it went under the propane tank cover as Papa smurf stated. The street side would be blocked by the brake switch.

I have the 2016 with backup assist. My trailer is a 23. No problem. Sticker had to go about 1/2: under tank. Works fine there.

Still not sure if it is worth the trouble. I have to back up a steep driveway and then turn.
