Towing 2011 Ford F150 4x4

Since I do not have the 2012 f150 I ordered the remco driveshaft. I will be installing tomorrow along with tow bar base plates and wiring. Question is when towing can I just pull a fuse or do I need to disconnect the battery to keep it from draining. And if it is a fuse , which one? Thanks

Hi Mike,

Make sure they send you the correct shifter and with clear instructions. Bill in customer service is very helpful. They sent me the wrong shifter and after modifying my differential (grinding slots in the webbing on the housing) and numerous photos and emails and phone calls, did Bill finally say "Oh thats not the correct shifter". duh! There is a little vibration in the drive shaft which I am told is to be expected, but other then that it works well. Good Luck

I installed the drive shaft and it drives out fine, can not tell the difference. The cable was a pain in the arse to install and not have to much bend in it. I am trying to figure out if there is a fuse I can pull or do I need to run a wire and thermal fuse from the moho battery's?? Thanks
