    Greetings,

    I am new to the truck world as I just purchased a practically new F250 to tow my 30 foot travel trailer. My truck has the integrated brake control. I have a Hayes Electronic Sway Control on the trailer to help keep the trailer sway free. I have a sway bar as well. My other tow vehicle was an Infiniti qx56 so I needed the extra sway control.

    My question is, can I keep the electronic sway control with the f250 or do I need to disconnect it and sell It?

    Thanks.

    Take the Hayes unit off. The integrated control on the F250 has the same capability, and is much more sophisticated than the Hayes unit. Additionally, I believe that if the Hayes unit activates while hooked to the F250, it will disable the F250's integrated brake controller until you squeeze the manual overide to reset it.

    Okay that is good to know. I didn't know if this year of truck had the sway control like this as part of the truck. I couldn't find any documentation for 2008 but did see something for the 2011. Thanks!
