We tow a 2019 Ford Raptor with a DP. We use the Air Force One braking system that uses the coach air, for proportional braking. Easy to connect.

When you tow your truck, once you've placed it in towing mode, switch to Perimeter Sensors on the alarm (last thing in dash window) or your interior alarm will go off while towing.

Here's the procedure condensed. I have a copy of this laminated and keep it in the seat back.

Recreational Towing

1. Press the engine START/STOP button once without pressing the brake pedal.

2. Press and hold the brake pedal.

3. Shift the transmission to neutral (N).

4. Enable Neutral Tow through the information display by selecting Settings / Advanced Settings / Vehicle.

5. Then select Neutral Tow while still pressing the brake pedal. Press and hold the OK button. If completed successfully, the information display shows Neutral Tow Enabled Leave Transmission in Neutral.

6. Leave the transmission in neutral (N) and press the engine START/STOP button once without pressing the brake pedal.

7. Release the brake pedal.

8. Set alarm to Perimeter only.

Hi Grant:
Did you ever get your answer on your F150? I have a 2022 Platinum and have the same questions about the electronic brake boost.
I'm going to call Demco in the morning and ask them for direction if possible.
Thanks,
Mike

MikeyG, No I never did get an answer on the F150 with electronic boost. Ford did finally admit there is a issue with the Bronco and the 2.7 engine which has electronic boost. They issued TSB 22-2210 which states the electronic boost stays on for a period of time after turning the key off and they spell out the procedure for disabling it by pulling a couple of fuses. They are working on some kind of software fix that will be available in September. Don't know if the fix will keep the boost off or on.
Demco is very familiar with the Bronco issue. There is a bunch of us in the Bronco world that have been giving Ford hell about this.
Don't know for sure if the F150 is the same or not but they both use the same software.
