Ford F150/Wildcat Maxx follow-up
Picked up the trailer on Sunday after a walk-thru and LDH/Sway Bar tutorial. If you recall, I was worried that my F150 2.7 ecoboost wasn't enough truck for the trailer. The Ford ecoboost forum wasn't much help as the truck is so new there just isn't a lot of experience with it.
After hooking everything up and setting the proper gain for the braking system, we took off for the 2 hour ride home, mostly freeway with a fair amount of traffic. Slow speed and freeway speed (60 MPH) I really couldn't tell I had a load. Acceleration and hill climbs aren't record breaking but overall the truck and trailer handled beautifully. There was a full load (36 gallons) of fresh water in the tanks (thanks dealer) as well as two full 7 gallon propane tanks and a battery on the trailer tongue.
Mileage averaged 9.8 MPG for the trip and transmission temp never exceeded 200 degrees. Of course it was only in the 60's and the roads were relatively flat.
In any case, we're going to try this set-up for the season and see if it presents any issues. Thanks again for all the advice.
