Posting just FYI, this system applies to certain Gen 14 (2021-2023 model year) F150s, mine is a 2022 Lariat.
- Not all trucks come from the factory with the required wiring harness; mine did not, so required installation of a Ford replacement harness behind the rear bumper under the truck.
- Not all trucks have the required "Trailer Tire Info" item on the instrument panel display under the "Towing" menu item (mine did, it's visible before / without any of this installed).
- The 360-degree cam package is required for the trailer rear view cam.
- The trailer TPMS+rear view cam kit is a genuine Ford Accessory, which is complete with all items required for the trailer-side of the installation.
- The TPMS and cam both communicate to the truck via a hard-wire connection (a second umbilical cord) to a Ford proprietary 12-pin connector on the truck
The attached pics
- Screenshot of TPMS dashboard display showing tire pressure and temperature
- Screenshot of rear cam image on main 12" dashboard display (my back yard)
- Pic of the Ford 7+12-pin connector socket I installed in the bed of my truck for convenience with a 5.0 Escape; normally this connector is on the rear bumper of the truck for bumper-pull trailers.
- All pics are 'fuzzier' than reality because of my inept image size reduction to meet forum posting filesize limits
For detailed info on the parts I used, the installation, and more / better pics, please see this post on an F150 forum
. With the exception of the physical mounting of the bedside socket all of the work was 'plug-and-play' (no alteration of OE wiring whatsoever).
Not for everyone, but for me the total integration with the Ford OE displays and low-tire-pressure warning alarms is fantastic - no aftermarket displays, wires, etc.
