Just wish they would communicate with there service/parts folks.

    I had my local RV guys do the job. Right at $400 for parts and labor. The Ford OEM hitch is almost $400 and then there is the wiring. The "Trailer Prep Wiring" plug had to be spliced as there is no OEM part available. The pain of an "Early Adopter". I'm really happy especially not paying Ford another $200 for install labor. I was at the Ford parts desk twice and they were unable to find an adapter for the wiring plug, so my RV guys did the work from some off the shelf stuff they had. WINNER!

    I the install myself. Not bad for 1 person if you have a way to raise it up in place. I used a motorcycle jack.
    The wiring took a little more time but was not bad.
