Brake Control on my 2012 F250SD

I was wondering if it is a bad thing to do to keep your foot on the brake pedal when you come to a stop. Does the electric magnet heat up as long as the brake is applied. I have a 2014 317RL Wildcat. I usually put the tv in park if i'm stopped for a long time. Any information is greatly appreciated. jallen02

I have had no issues. While stopping at stop lights or waiting to enter the highway I usually keep my foot on the brake, as I would when driving without a trailer in tow. Of course if I were stopped for a long period of time, I would put the tv in park. I don't think you will have any problems as long you don't ride the brake while moving. I am sure you will have people chime in with more tow time than I have. I don't drive any different while towing than without a tt, I just go slower and watch my turns, and try to plan my lane changes in advance.

I've never worried about it. Without the inertia sensor activation, there is little power to the brakes. I don't believe the magnets create much heat on their own in anycase.
