Turn off electronic sway control with Propride?

I have a 2011 F50 which has a sway control feature built into the tow package. I am confused about how to use this in conduction with a ProPride hitch. Should it be left on or turned off? I have seen write ups which suggest that the two work against each other and write ups which suggest they are complimentary.

Question We use a Hensley....

.....the PP eliminates sway...

The built in ESC uses the TV brakes.

IMHO....redundant.

I would shut it down...but I'm new here and know nothing.

We have a Ram 1500 (electronic sway control) with ProPride hitch and it's solid as a rock. Neither one can be shut off. But always learning something new.

The ProPride stabilizes the trailer with is converging linkage design transferring the trailer tongue pivot point forward near the truck rear axle. This linkage prevents the trailer from initiating any turn off centerline; only the truck can initiate a turn.

The electronic sway control applies braking to the trucks wheels to counteract any sway motion its sensor detects. Just an enhancement of the electronic stabilization systems that have been around for some time.

I leave it on. It only activates if a sway condition actually occurs....when things go horribly wrong. It operates like an unhumanly fast correction in an emergency better than you could to correct truck yaw. I cannot fathom it interfering with PPP at all.

I also run with it on with my 13' F150, Propride with 1400lb bars, 28' International. Tows great and have driven in some pretty intense sidewinds.

technically the electronic system on the PU won't do anything because the trailer won't sway. So don't worry.
