Re: 2019 F150 Trailer Brake Controller install, small issue

Also, I was able to get all of the parts I needed to do a complete brake contoller install from Fairway Ford 877-532-4792. Give them your VIN number.
NOTE: You can use a dremel drywall routerbit and cut out the plastic bumper to fit the 7way plug. You need to drop the spare tire and cut out from the underside of the truck. The metal part of the bumper has the rough shape to follow with the dremel bit. FYI, don't cut out the dog ear portion of the sheet metal. If you follow the sheetmetal pattern exactly, you will cut out to much. Take a hard look at the shape of the 7way plug before cutting and it will make sense. I didn't, now I need to make something to cover up the dog ears that show. Also, I left the old wire harness in place and just zip tied the new wire harness to the old one just in case. You can do what you want.

How to Use
Ford Trailer Brake Controller
Many Ford trucks like the F150 come equipped with an electric trailer brake controller, otherwise known as TBC. As the name implies, its purpose is to assist vehicles hauling trailers with braking for an overall smoother, secure experience. A driver of a truck utilizing TBC need not do anything out of the ordinary; by pressing on the truck’s brake, the TBC should automatically brake the trailers’ wheels as well. However, it’s important to know how to properly set it up for the best results.
How to Setup the Trailer Brake Controller
Ford trucks will automatically apply the same level of pressure you apply to your vehicle’s brakes to the brakes of what you’re towing. However, you can also adjust the voltage based on the trailer weight, incremental weather, and road conditions like gravel versus. pavement.
The truck’s center console enables you to access the trailer brake controller, often positioned to the right of the wheel. Here, you can turn this feature on-and-off, as well as determine who much voltage you want to transfer to your TBC. Too little power, and you risk dangerously hurting your abilities to abruptly brake when needed. However, keeping your settings unnecessary high can put extra wear on your tires or even cause your brakes to lock.
To view how much power your trailer brake controller has, go to your LCD productivity screen and navigate to Truck Apps and then push the arrow twice to view Trailer Display. Assuming a trailer is connected to your truck, you can see a visual of how much power your Ford will transfer with the current settings, also known as “gain setting.”
For more information on how to best adjust your specific truck’s settings, consult your ownership manual or consult with Bo Beuckman Quality Ford. Regardless of the specific model, it’s recommended to adjust the trailer brake controller when driving in an area with minimal traffic.
Properly Connecting Your Trailer Your Ford Truck
Of course, the trailer brake controller is ineffective if the trailer itself is not properly attached to your truck. To ensure you’ve done it correctly, we suggest navigating to the Connection Checklist option on your screen. From here, you are provided with guidelines for various attachment methods, making sure you don’t skip important steps like readjusting your mirrors, raising your tongue jack, etc.

what I had to do to get gain control to show up on Forscan was ,go to FORScan V2 Changes history and select version you need to roll back the latest version, i have a 2018 ford f-150 XL 2,7 4X4 with trailer tow package installed from ford but i installed the trailer brake control in dash , simple after I looked at several YouTube videos, there's different ones (videos) for console models and non console models , but you can figure out the differences, (make sure you take out the 7mm screw down near the gas pedal that holds bottom together). I used the v2.3.22 dated 2019-05-11 version which is available in the prior versions list . you may be able to use one of the others after that .
I uninstalled my latest version v 2.3.39 2021-03-16 off my windows laptop and installed v2.3.22 . put my license in for registration , fired it up with my odb2 adaptor to USB port on my laptop, start vehicle linking , clicked on the chip icon, clicked on ipc to activate my access. which is where all my access was to trailers brake, trailer brake control , and trailer brake gain , which I downloaded 4/13/2021.
Now that I did this my in dash trailer brake is functioning as designed,
I know some do not have active fuse slot #24 , actually slot #24 has small female terminals that take pin style fuse/breakers in slot 24 , which my truck did have an active positive slot tested with truck on and test light, All I had to do for power was install the appropriate 30 amp fuse in slot #24
I was about to change my 35.oo OEM purchase trailer brake controller due to it came from Ebay wrecked truck . and I thought the gain control was messed up and possibly not working ,WRONG !
I found an article on ford f-150 forum.com blog where some with 2019 ford f-150 was having an issue with not finding the gain control activation line, in ipc , So I followed what they did and it worked , flawlessly , I also was able to shut off the auto engine stop as well, just don't forget after you ENABLE you have to save it by pressing the learn icon on FORScan , hope this helps.
Well, stop. I stopped her. I told you not to finish. Take off your skirt and blouse and get straight. Galina Petrovna straightened up, pulled off her skirt, took off her blouse and again stood in front of me.

DICK began to twitch, dragging YULIA across the floor. Unable to bear it any longer, I jumped out of the apartment and wandered aimlessly around the city for several hours. When I came back, as if nothing had happened, I was greeted by DIK in the hallway, wagging his tail, and kissed by his wife who came out of.
