Overland Posted August 17, 2017 Share Posted August 17, 2017 I read on an F150 forum that there is a note in the owners manual warning that the Adaptive Cruise Control on the F150 does not control the trailer brakes and that you should never use it when towing. That's one of those warning boxes that I could have easily missed had it not been pointed out to me. With some research, however, I discovered that Ford changed the warning in the 2nd Edition of the 2017 Owners Manual to state that Adaptive Cruise does not work with aftermarket brake controllers; i.e., you're fine using the built in controller. What I don't know of course is if it was an ongoing mistake in the manual that they finally corrected in 2017, or if they actually updated the system in 2017. Regardless, it's something worth being aware of if you have a 2015 or 2016 F150 (I think they added adaptive cruise in 2015), particularly if you're like me and tend to skim past all those warning boxes, lol. It seems like something that you could use all the time without realizing the danger. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
