Does any body know for sure if the built in brake controller in the fords can handle disc brakes and if they do is there a setting that has to be changed?Edited by: KR2011

YES! One of the great features of the 2011 Ford is that the brake controler will handle the disk brakes. On mine, I cycle through the different settings on the intrument cluster and there is a setting for trailer brakes. You can actually set the controler to handle several trailers and identify each trailer differently.

Do you have to have a trailer plugged in to change these settings? I can get to the brake setting but it does not give me any options.

I don't think so but I don't remember. I think it was in the set-up mode

I'll plug a trailer in at the shop in the morning and see what it does.

We didn't have to change PO # so instead of the end of march it will probably be the first week in April or so because we added paint.

They're now saying around the first of April the dealer should get it. Then they have to get the gas generator installed so hopfully the first 2 weeks of April. We are going to go do a factory tour while it's on the line being built.

We are going to the factory tour while they build ours and my friends as well. Sounds like all of ours should be delivered about the same time
