Is there an easy way to get rid of this or do I need to go down the rabbit hole of forscan?

If that's the case what does that entail and or cost? I never figured to mess with that but last couple of weekends I've pulled a small utility trailer and it was nice to keep an eye on stuff when moving except the safety notice bar is in the way of a lot.

I should have made part two of my question clearer.

I don't have forscan or any of it's components. All I know is some of the stuff I've seen people talk about changing settings on their truck with it.
Is it an item plugged into the obd and requires a program to change stuff? I'm assuming that's the case. Would I need to go buy a laptop? Kit of some kind?

If it's not simple or cheap then I'll live with it.

Yes you need an OBD adapter and Forscan is software. A laptop does help. You could probably do it with a Bluetooth adapter and a desktop if you are in range. Probably a 3 of 5 on difficulty scale just create backups before you edit truck data. All that is covered in some YouTube videos.
