Turning the jack controller - 2023 23FBT

The 2023 23FBT is in for warranty work right now. With my F150 that has max tow and a Blue Ox sway hitch I can't open the tailgate fully with it connected. Looks like I need about another 1 1/2".


If I have the dealer rotate the jack control 90 degrees will it likely clear? Need a quick answer as they are almost done with repairs.

I have had to do this with both of my tow vehicles. If it is the original tongue jack then it is a relatively easy fix to do yourselves. Airstream Nerds has a quick video on how to do this. Not sure if it will give you the clearance you need, but easy to do.

Dealer

Sent the video to the dealer and how to grind a long "arm" wrench to fit in tight spaces. Waiting...

turning the jack

Have the 2023 23FBT back from two months of warranty and other work. Had a few parts problems.


Had them turn the jack while it was there. I can now open the tailgate on the F150 with the AS attached to the Blue Ox sway pro. Will make it easier to get items out of the truck bed.
