1. Any comments on the choice of TV? For the specific configuration, we are rated to trailer loads up to 10500LB, it also has a class IV hitch factory installed etc.
2. The TV has the Ford pro-trailer backup assist functionality. I understand from research set-up there is a specific decal to be positioned 7-22 inches back from the ball coupler on the a-frame. Question - is there sufficient enough horizontal surface of the a-frame available to locate this decal (I think about 5 inches long) and, if not, does anyone know if the decal can be installed vertically (i.e. on the low part of the propane tank cover, and the backup assist still function correctly?
Many thanks for any wisdom on these points.
I have a 2015 F-150, Ecoboost, that at first towed a 25' FC, then a little later, a current 30' FC.
The Ford is a crew cab, max. tow pkg. 3.55 final drive, and is rated for 12,200 lbs.
Works for me.
Sorry, can't advise on back-up assist; don't have it.
Nice, daily driver too.
