We have a 2011 F450 pulling our 2012 36RL and don't have the odometer for the RV either, at least I can't find it. Maybe I need to connect the RV to the truck and it will show up, maybe not.

You know you have more than 1 trip odometer...you have a tripA and a trip B nust keep your trailer miles on trip B and then right them down each time you disconnect and total them every so often or just keep a small trailer journal

Grandpa said itautomatically recorded the mileage of the RV when it was connected to the TV. I can't seem to find that feature on our F450.

My tow vehicle is a Ford F-350 shown in the photo below.

On the instrument panel between the tachometer and the speedometer there is a display screen. I assume most or all Ford F Series trucks have this screen. If you scroll through the menu you can enter the category "Truck Apps". Scroll right until you see the trailer information screen. If you haven't set up the name of your trailer you'll need to refer to the owners manual. I don't remember how I set it up off the top of my head. It's a nifty feature.

It is available on TV with the optional message centre, which I believe is installed on Lariat & King Ranch models.

On the display screen highlight the truck icon (below fuel economy), it starts with an off-road screen, hit the right arrow and it takes you to the trailer screen. If no trailer is connected you will receive that message, press OK to enter the options. At the Change active trailer option, use up/down to select New Trailer from that sub-menu, press right arrow for the name input screen. Use the up/down arrows to select apha/numeric characters. Press the right arrow to move the cursor for the next character.

It takes some time, but definitely worth it.
