Thank you for sharing that pic, as that works for you it should work for those of us that the horizontal position of the sticker on the A frame is so frustrating.

The new F150 2021 has an additional gyroscope box that goes on the A frame, in addition to the sticker and is supposed to work really good. I will not know from personal experience because (with a heavy heart by lighter weight on my mind) I switched my order to an F250 2022. The good news for me is that this truck also has backup assist pro with the small wheel to maneuver, like the 150 has for a few years now. Not sure if it has also the gyroscope, but better than no backup assist at all, especially knowing that the sticker placed vertically on the bottom of the propane tank cover, works per the pic posted earlier in the conversation.

On another subject, my understanding of the short video clip I posted above is about the effects of placing weight aft or forward on the trailer, being quite dramatic.
