Hey guys,
I’m still going through the custom order process and haven’t decided on the max recline seats yet. I had two questions:
1) Are they actually comfortable?
2) Can you do the massaging seats when it’s in max recline? If so I may start sleeping in the garage 😀

Haven’t tried massage while flat. I will give it a shot.

The max recline is very comfortable I just did it for short time but I could see taking a snooze on a road trip.I have to try the massaging while flat.
I know I had the passenger seat down flat and got a message on the screen to move it to upright position while driving actually had to sit in the seat a raise it up to get rid of message.

That's actually comforting that they won't allow you to lay flat when Blue Cruise comes out later this year :).

Not sure why the passenger shouldn't be able to lay flat while driving.🤷‍♂️

I was referring to the fact that there is a sensor for the incline (which is good) so the driver can't sit back and sleep while going down the road. I know about the camera as well. I don't care about the passenger it was a general statement about the functionality.

Understood. And, I get it.

Still wonder why Ford won't let the wife sleep while I drive :)

1 Yes very, I have the platinum and the seats are the best truck seats I have ever been in.
2 Yup, the massage works at full recline.

The issue about the passenger sleeping while under way is that the safety feature (Airbag, Seatbelt, etc.) are not design to provide the same level of protection if the person is prone and therefore a liability in the case of a accidents etc.

So if you’re willing to be annoyed by the message and I guess take the risk the passenger could fully extend the seat while driving? Not a good idea but just curious

When the alert chimes for the passenger seat being reclined too far, simply hit "OK" on the steering wheel, and the message goes away.

Hey Machz,
Do you know if all Platinums have 120 volt plugs in the bed or do you have to have the generator? I was not planning on adding that option and just go with the 400 watts.
