  1. 2021 powerboost 7.2 kw failure when truck new

    I would highly recommend you get to know the lemon laws in your state. In mine (MD) you send a certified letter to Ford with all the details and provide them with a 90 day notice to repair the issue. If they don’t repair it, they have to buy the truck back from you. The letter might light a fire...
  2. CarPlay Apple Maps updated visuals

    I tilt more toward a stronger statement of just plain NO. With the in dash apple maps experience and some recent bugs with Waze and carplay, I switch to almost excusively using apple maps. Damned if it wasn't two days later that I got a camera speed trap ticket. I've now switched back to...
  3. Pricing of cars/trucks going to collapse?

    While this all sounds awesome, there is still a piece that is missing and that is the valuation of a trade. Provided you are trading in a vehicle, the dealership could still try to screw you by offering a very low trade value. That comes as a double hit if they offer you a terrible trade in...
  4. Lockable, fold flat storage under the rear seat STANDARD on Platinum?

    I removed the fold flat storage so that I could re-use the rubber floor mats from my 2021. The bolts are barely taller than the carpet. With the FX4 rubber floor mat over top of the removed storage bin, you really can't tell that the bolts are there. The bolts have a square nut at the base...
  5. Ground fault with nothing plugged in 7.2kW

    Look into the lemon laws in your state. This is a major system of the truck that significantly affects the intended use of the vehicle. This is what the lemon laws are written for. The law may give you some leverage in dealing with Ford and the dealership. In my state you have to send a...
  6. BlueCruise not available until second half 2022 - says Ford customer service

    It’s very simple to turn it off and still use the adaptive cruise. Just hit the car between two dotted lines button on the steering wheel. This will turn off all of the steering assistance.
  7. What insurance company for your f150?

    All they see are statistics. It doesn’t matter how safe a car is if a high percentage of drivers who own that particular car are irresponsible.
  8. What insurance company for your f150?

    I have StateFarm as well. I have the electronic nanny “Drive Safe” thing on my truck and Im saving a ton of money with it. I canceled the Drive Safe for my car because I didn’t need them seeing how I drive it ;-) I was tired of getting bad marks for acceleration, breaking, and turns! It’s...
  9. Ordered first mod. Husky Liners for rear Wheel wells

    I just installed the husky liners on my 2022. I had to trim about 2 inches on the passenger side to fit around the CCD shocks. Easy to do, but hard once it’s up in the well with a hand trimmer. I ended up using an oscillating tool but was nervous the whole time about accidentally clipping the...
  10. Interior / Tailgate work surface survey!

    My biggest use for the interior work surface is place much laptop there while I work forscan mods. For this it’s wonderful! as for the tailgate, it’s nice to have some places that I can put things so they don’t roll around like in the little cup area. I’ve definitely used the clamp pockets and...
  11. Hands-Free driving mode trial period - is this same as Bluecruise?

    It kind of bugs me that they call it a “trial”. We paid for it, so what is it not just “service”?
  12. Using Hybrid Generator to power the house

    I apologize, I didn’t mean to quote your post, it was embedded with Jimbos. I understand exactly what isolating the ground does. I also understand that most people in this country (even some that own a powerboost) can’t afford to pay an electrician 1000s of dollars to put in a secondary...
  13. Using Hybrid Generator to power the house

    Jimbo… Good idea, stay on your high horse and ride off. Since you decided to attempt to insult me directly, I should mention I have two degrees in EE, and passed the master electrician exam after studying for a day so that I could rewire my house and have it all inspected. Saved me thousands of...
  14. 12/20/2021 Build Club

    I used my corded polisher for about 15 min with my F150 and then put it away and pulled out the M18 polisher. Managing the cord around a vehicle this large and reaching across the hood where I started was a pain in the neck, literally.After realizing just how much surface area this truck has, I...
  15. BlueCruise not available until second half 2022 - says Ford customer service

    I get the feeling that being an electronics “specialist” at a Ford dealer is a little like being a weatherman. If you get it right every once and a while you can keep your job.
  16. Pricing of cars/trucks going to collapse?

    I predict several things will happen… 1)Production will catch up to demand - this will mostly cause used car values to drop 2) Interest rates will go up. This will cause more incentives to be in the form of low borrowing rates. This will further drive used car prices down because it means a...
  17. Using Hybrid Generator to power the house

    The ground fault protection is looking for a short from the ground to any other leg of circuit. Much like what would happen in your bathroom, if either leg (hot or neutral) are shorted to ground by hitting your sink full of water, it will immediately disconnect the power. In the instance of...

    For all the MY22 folks out there. Has your fordpass app and picture updated from the Lightening picture? Mine still shows the generic Lightening photo.
