A Ford F150 w/ 11200 lb tow rating? Only with 3.73 gears my friend. I would hate to see your MPG. Check this out: http://www.ford.com/resources/ford/g...0_r1_Jan12.pdf . Be safe and use the distro hitch with sway if over 55 mph. All it takes is a semi passing you to get that camper swaying.. The sway you purchased requires you to remove it before going in reverse. Have a great camping season.

No offense but saying you don't need sway control is a bad idea until the day you do need it. Traveling parts of the country with 75 and 80 speed limits you may only go 60 nut I assure you the other guys including semis don't. Add this to a windy day, 28 feet of trailer and you will eventually have sway.

I just checked I was incorrect my 2015 F150 tow rating is 10700. My tracer air 252 is about 6100 fully loaded. I have towed many times on under 100 mile trips with no weight distribution hitch at speeds up to 70 mph with zero sway. With that said when my new weight distribution hitch comes in I will probably try the anti sway attachment, if I have it why not use it.

70mph is also not a good idea given your TT tires are speed rated at 65 unless you changed them.

Going thru my 252 cleaning & getting ready for camping season I tried to find my slide controller. I'm not having any problems with the slide but would like to know where the controller is located just in case I ever have slide issues. Any idea where it's hidden?

I have looked and I can't find it. The wires run into the cabinet next to the slide on the right side.

Thanks I will search around some more, hopefully it's not buried somewhere. Not really a big deal just would like to find it just in case I have slide issues in the future. Thanks again!

On a 250 Air the controller was behind the panel facing the front in the rear storage area
