Update

I still 19.7K on the truck. Looked for an engine hour timer. My last truck had this option on the display. This truck has one stop that simply states Hours:Minutes:Seconds. Not sure if this is the engine hours but mine has 5Hrs:something:something. I know I have more than 5 hours running time so I have to think that this timer (whatever it is timing) gets reset when the reset button is depressed.

I'll let y'all know of any changes when I go over 20K.

Well Ford got the part in on Thur. before the Holiday. Well after 1400 miles later the ABS Light didn't shine once. I just checked the mileage with a shade over 1400 miles and towing 1050 miles I got 13.1 miles per gallon All Smiles Too.

The Black Pig went on a Diesel Diet !!!!! I can live live with that. I love that
Tow-Haul mod too.

Well we are getting those Missouri Bugs off to give the Indina & Ohio bugs room.

Engine hours are seen: Hit setup--reset. This should show the engine hours as the first item. It used to be on the regular message center, now you have to look for it.
Be sure what is showing when you hit the reset button--don't want to lose something you are keeping track of.
I have almost 9K on mine, get around 12.5-13.1 staying under 65/2200rpm. Got 9.1 on last long trip towing. It really gets the job done in style, the Nav system is impressive.
I was told something in the computer changes at 7500 miles, but I haven't seen a difference yet.

Reading my old post that was with my Cardinal gross weight about 10,500 lbs. The Jayco Designer is a Little heavier at gross 15,800 lbs. Well with weight goes fuel mileage. I am down wintering in Texas the Pig has 26 K now towing Milage is about 9 mpg with no wind and 7 with the breeze a blowing. Well I guess you pay for your pleasures. I'm not complaning about the mileage just whinning. Might look at the new 6.7 motor in a f450 with a hauler body. Just Looking.

My '09 has 595 hours at 23897 miles=40.1mph. I haven't seen any improvement in mileage yet--gets 12-13 at highway 60mph; 11-11.5 in heavy city driving. But it tows my 17k fiver just fine.
Hopes are high for big improvement in 2011 mileage, but they no longer offer the same GVW of 14500 in the 450--it will be 13050. Tow capacities still the same.
17" wheels/tires biggest reason for the derated GVW.
