Anybody here have a fuse and relay missing when the tow package was factory installed?
Yes, in my 2012 the breaker was in the glove box also. Discovered it when I did not have a voltage on the 7pin connector and I looked in the trucks hand book where it was listed. Plugged it in and I then had 12volts. One other item, I only get 12volts on the 7pin connector when the ignition is on..

After a little research I ordered a relay online and picked up a 30A fuse and now I have 12V at the hitch connector. I am a bit disappointed that I had to finish the dealer's work but for $7 it was worth doing it myself rather doing battle with Ford. Now I can have confidence that my trailer battery will be charging as we head to the campsite.

Sweet glad you got it figured out. Use a volt meter to check the battery with the truck running to make sure you are charging the trailer battery while under way. When hooked up to shore power check again to make sure your converter is working properly.
