    Help for those who flounder at the ramp

    Too difficult to back your trailer down the ramp?
    Ford has the solution.

    Less time? I'd have already been in the water by the time the dude started twisting knobs

    Geez. I'm not the best at backing up a trailer, but that just seems absurd.

    I tow with a 2010 BMW 3 series. It's easy. When it's straight you don't see the ski/trailer in the mirrors. Crooked? You see the trailer.

    That is just sad.....I agree, I can back down and be in the water before I even touch the knob..

    That being said there has been more times then not on the ramp where ive waited 15-20 minutes for my turn...There have also been a few times where Ive pulled people out of their trucks and did it for them out of "courtesy"

    Why even bother getting a drivers license? After all, who needs those "pesky driving skills"?
    Who writes that stuff!?!

    So another faulty electronic device that is attached to the vehicles steering... Yeah no thanks. And this is not even safe. The noobs will be cranking that wheel left and right, truck will be all over the ramp side to side while drivers faces are planted in the screen. I see so many accidents about to happen.

    Now Ford needs to work on getting a device so people can drive forward without crashing, this way you can still text & have a meal while driving.
