Congrats on the purchase.
Go to the manufacture website of the brake controller you have and find instructions, should be easy to follow.

Welcome from Maryland. As others have said; take your time. Do not let the person walking you thru PDI rush you. Make them repeat if you need to clarify and ask as many questions as you want. If you can't get an answer that makes sense to you, get some else to give you a more definitive answer. You paid for this service when you bought your TT. When you make your appt. to pick up - do not make your appt. near lunch or closing time.

Anyway, we signed on the dotted lines and hope to bring it home next weekend if my parking spot can be finished next week.

I think I need to see how to upload pics to this forum...
Best option for mirrors is the Ford or an equivalent aftermarket replacement. If that's not in the cards, I'd go with the CIPA slip ons.

Congrats on your purchase! My PDI was about 1.5-2 hrs and there were a lot of things I forgot that I had to quickly learn my first time out. At 2.5 hrs you might have some questions but the good thing I learned was that this forum is very useful in finding the solutions without having to post since someone already ran into the same problem.

As for your truck, I understand how you don't want to part with your truck since it sounds like you've taken care of it since you got it. I parted ways with my 2010 F150 last year with only 36k miles on it. Max tow weight for it was 9600 and I was near 9000 loaded with mine. I was over payload and didn't like the way it towed though the hills. I traded my baby in for an F250 and enjoy the handling better as I tow the trailer while taking my family to the campground.

Enjoy your trailer and be safe!
