Jennifer Shaw, Ford driver assistance electronics supervisor, gave Hard Working Trucks a tour of camera assist features available on 2017 Super Duty trucks.
Shaw, a self-described novice at backing up a trailer, makes it look pretty easy as she demonstrates camera modes and assist features that come with Ford’s Trailer Reverse Guidance (TRG) system.
Take note of the auxiliary camera which has been mounted on the rear of the trailer. The camera, which is submersible, comes with a cable that can be ordered in 38-, 48-, and 58-foot lengths.
Shaw also talks about how to install the special reference sticker on a trailer which Ford’s TRG system uses to determine trailer angle relative to the rear of the truck. Additional instructions can be found at Ford’s website, trailerreverseguidance.com.
Apologies for the shaky camera movement and special thanks to Shaw for the impromptu tutorial.
