Anybody towing a Ford C-Max Energi w/BlueOx Braking System

I have a 2017 Ford C-Max Energy that I will be towing with my 2017 Hurricane. I have a BlueOx Patriot Braking System that I want to use for braking in the Energi. In the Installation Notes of the braking sysrem, it makes this statement. "When installing the Patriot on hybrids/vehicles with continuous power assist brakes or if the user gets the "REPOSITION BRAKE" error twice in a row while trying to set-up their brake, then they should do the following: change the MODE from "FORCE" to "POSITION"."

Trying to find anyone who is towing a Ford Energi and using the BlueOx Braking System. Have you made this change to the "MODE" setting. I am not getting the "REPOSITION BRAKE", just concerned about it being a hybrid and whether it has continuous power assist brakes.

You may not find anyone participating here with that exact combination, so you might want to try the broader forums like IRV2 or RV.NET/forum

Even better, call the Blue Ox folks out in Pender, Nebraska. They are great and likely have the knowledge you are looking for. 800-288-9289 Central time zone.
I think we need to stop calling it "working from home" and start calling it "living at work!"
