The 2017 ford Superduty Trucks Have A Remote Tailgate Release In The Lariat And King Ranch Models. The Tailgate Of My Truck And Others Have Dropped Without Action From The User. This Makes These Vehicles Unsafe When Carrying Cargo That Is Only Secured By The Tailgate Or When Towing 5th Wheel Trailers. Mine Has Dropped Some 16 Times Since November. Apparently ford Dealers Are Universally Blaming The Operators For Accidentally Pushing The Tailgate Button Twice On The Fob. However, I Had An Accident On May 6th, When I Could Not Have Pushed The Button On The Fob. The Tailgate Dropped, After I Drove Over 65 Miles On Mountain Roads – Just As I Was Entering An Interstate On-ramp. My Trucks Tailgate And My 5th Wheel Camp Trailer Were Both Damaged. Fortunately I Was Not In Traffic. The Damage To The 5th Wheel Was Just Under The Propane Tanks And Near The Mail Power Bus. I Am Changing The Truck Wiring To Disconnect Power To The Tailgate, But This Is Really Not A Satisfactory Fix. On Line I Found At Least 3 Other Instances Of This Problem. Whether The Operators And Unknowingly Activating The Tailgate Release Or The Fobs Are Faulty Or The electrical Systems Are Faulty Or Whatever The Cause, The Result Is A Hazard That Can Cause Loss Of Vehicle/ Trailer Control Or The Dropping Of Cargo On The Highways. This Is A Hazard That Needs Fixing By ford. *tt

Truck Tailgate Randomly Opens When Vehicle Is Being Driven. I Have Owned This Truck For 6 Months And The Random Opening Has Occured 4 Times When Driving. Without Any Notice Or Warning The Truck Tailgate Opens When The Vehicle Is Being Driven. The Most Recent Occurrence Caused The Loss Of Cargo On The Highway. It Appears The Fob Is Somehow Double Clicked When In The Driver’s Pocket Causing The Tailgate To Open (fob Has Tailgate Remote Opening Feature). This Is A Serious Safety Concern Since The Vehicle Operator Has No Way Of Knowing The Tailgate Has Opened. There Should Be An Interlock That Prevents The Automatic Opening Of The Tailgate When The Vehicle Is Being Driven.

Mileage was 11000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):1FT8W3BT2HE. Ford F-350 2017 problem was reported in WARRENTON, VA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 45 mph.
