Sorry I had to.
Could it be the road surface? I have noticed wiggles or vibrations from the road surface.

Doh!

Just got back from an 5000 mile trip to Newfoundland.

The 'wiggle' showed up a couple of times - at highway speeds and in conditions that were windy.

Overall not really an issue - I think it might just be a slight sway that is stopped by the anti-sway system from getting worse.

I made a point of looking closely when it happened and there looks like a very very slight sway when I feel it. Not even enough that I would call it sway - more like a slight weight transfer from side to side.

I am pretty used to driving the combination now after 5000 miles under all conditions, so conclude that it's not really a problem - just the way the rig behaves.

The F150 Ecoboost is an absolute beast - pulls up steep hills easily maintaining speed with less than 1/2 gas pedal - really amazing.

Gas mileage sucked - 9.8 mpg but that's expected hauling a trailer and going 65-70 mph most of the time and hitting a lot of steep hills.

Trailer is great - only a few minor issues - rain dripping in - A/C bolts had never been tightened since new - one was almost an inch out, and the others were all loose.

My fresh water hose sprung a leak and it was spraying straight up to the bottom of the trailer, so at first I thought I had a burst pipe IN the trailer that was leaking down. Weird illusion.

Black tank valve ended up leaking - some crap (maybe literally) must have been blocking the valve a bit. When I got home I drained it, filled it, flushed it, back flushed it and it's ok now. That's never fun opening the cap and finding sludge.

Overall though a fantastic trip and I love the Truck and Trailer!

Thanks for all the advice!

What tires are on your truck, P-rated or LT's? Could it be a combination of the right conditions and the tire sidewalls flexing if P-rated? If LT's, not sure! Lol

Glad to hear you had a great trip!!!!

I can't imagine Ford putting 'P' tires on a new F150. I'm pretty sure they are LT.

Unfortunately, they did put P tires on the F150. But not all of them. It depended on the package.

Oh they most certainly do. My 2013 F150 has the 3:73 gears and the Maxtow package, yet it STILL had P-Rated tires. I don't agree with the fact that they did it, but they most certainly did.

You'd think, with the Max Tow pkg, they'd put LT tires on it! Crazy.

I think in 2013 you had to get the HD Payload package to get the LT Tires generally, which also came with the 7 lugs on the wheels.

Sounds about right. My 2005 F150 came with 18" LT's from the factory.

My Max Tow came with P rated tires from the factory. Those got swapped out immediately for a set of load range E LT's. You can get LT tires in load range C, D, and E so just because it says LT doesn't mean it's all the same stiffness.

My Dad's Max Tow EcoBoost came with LTs but they are Load Range C. My best friend's Max Tow with a 2000lb payload and 11,300lb tow rating came with P rated Goodyears if you can believe that.

Some may say E's are overkill for a half ton, but I disagree. I like having extra tire and more stability. I air mine up to 55 in the rear and 50 in the front when I tow and it's solid. I run about 45-48psi unloaded.
