I have installed a "Hidden
I have installed a "Hidden Hitch" trailer hitch on my '08 MMH, it was a different type of installation, one hole on each side of the frame needed enlarged. And then a spring like wire is attached to the mounting bolts then you fish the wire through the frame, not too touch just requires a little patience.
Now for my question has anyone wired for the trailer lights, I have yet to find a kit to do this. My '98 Dakota had a kit with aaimple plug in adapter, no cutting of wires, slick and easy. Anyone know of a kit like that for the '08 FEH or MMH?
You hard wire the trailer
You hard wire the trailer wiring directly to 12V battery in the engine compartment. Do not wire into the tail lights. Try E-trailer.com as a source for your needs.
PaulI--no. The hybrid uses
PaulI--no. The hybrid uses an electronic CVT that is hosed internally. My 2005 Hybrid has three radiators! One for the ICE, One for the electronics and One for the Hybrid battery pack! Towing or not, you want to use a synethic oil. The transmission fluid is not to be replaced until one has something like 120,000 miles!
So what your telling me that
So what your telling me that there is no way even to add one?
You would/could void your
You would/could void your warranty with this modification that I do not know how it could work since the eCVT is internally housed. Ford OEM parts for this type of work do not exist on the hybrid vehicle due to what I just mentioned. This vehicle is not really a long term or long distance tow vehicle.
Power for reverse is only
Power for reverse is only generated from the generator and hybrid battery. Thus, there is limited horsepower for reverse.

However, there is a point the electronic control module can't allow the battery SoC to drop to a point the gas engine does not have enough battery Soc to restart the engine.Network Blog
