Do any of the F150's have the ability to read a trailers TPMS ? Instead of having to buy a separate TPMS system and then watch that monitor. I am looking at TST but thought the truck does, just like I thought the truck could connect to a reverse camera on the trailer?

From what I’ve gathered so far, none of our trucks are wired to be able to use the Ford TPMS or customer-placed trailer camera as the super duties do.
IF Ford makes these kits available, they will require running wiring harness from the smart trailer connector to various modules throughout the vehicle.
It doesn’t look promising.

I wonder if it's all trims? My Lariat has the camera option in the camera menu and trailer tire TPMS in the dash menu. I figured they are just having a hard time producing them with all the other shortages.

My XLT has these menus and buttons as well.
The options are going to have to be wireless or require running wiring harnesses from the bumper to the dash.
But I can’t find any options or literature on when/if ford will offer these things.

How many wires at at your connector?

I posted a pic of mine a while back to a similar question. I think it was two.

I’ve seen a dozen pics of that connector across different trims and they all have 2.
Mine has max tow and the tow technology package.

A trailer TPMS/camera kit is now a standalone option for ‘22s. I ordered one with mine.

That is all I have heard of so far. More are needed to do other things.

Have not seen any way to do that yet. Hoping it is coming.

You'll have to let us know how it is. I have a TPMS monitor I can use for the time being. I don't see why it wouldn't be able to connect wirelessly like the regular TPMS sensors on the tires. Seems that would be the easiest integration.

Wireless would make sense for the TPMS.
