Darn, that's what the manual in my '17 450 says....

Bill, I only pointed that out since I know you never make a mistake...

Thanks, all. I just came back from checking the actuator-it’s full. I am going to go back and clean up the trailer side of 7 way plug. I had put some electrolytic grease in it on advice from my Ford dealer, then proceeded to drop it in the dirt. I bought some electrical connector spray and will check it after cleaning. I could have sworn that I could stop forward motion at slow speeds by manually applying the brakes. I ordered a new 7 way pin checker, but got delayed due to weather. Going to check brake and ground pins on truck for output.

Cleaned all of the plug connectors. Got a 1 or 2 at 20 omg as DW pumped brakes. Seems like a change in resistance, so I figure it’s not the truck. Brake actuator only clicks, no hum when brakes applied. New actuator?

I have not heard of an actuator going bad but if yours only clicks instead of going to work, it may be.

Wingnut=Why are you having so much difficulty understand that I am talking about my 350? I do not care what the manual for your 450 says. Different vehicles! Mine works the way I said it does.. And you can not prove otherwise by making smart a-- remarks.
Give it up-you're wrong about MY truck.

Just got off the phone with HydraStar, the actuator mfg. He emailed me two service bulletins to take to my Ford dealer that are instructions to re-flash the truck’s computer to change the settings. He said that they have had this problem show up several times and that it is ONLY with 2019 F350 and 2019DRVs!

Everyone knows that I hate to agree with anything that Porkie posts, but in this case, I have to agree with him. My 2012 F350 brake controller works from a dead stop and up. That's how I initially set the gain, and then finalize the set up with the foot brake. Let it idle forward and squeeze the finger controls, then let it idle forward and use the foot brake. Mine is set to 7.5. If 6.5 is not working, why not increase the gain?

Clev,
The finger controls work at any speed, it is the pedal input that is programmed to decrease braking at low speeds.

Sorry wing, I should have been more clear. 'Initially' I start with the finger controls, and then use the foot for final adjustments. After I have it set, I don't use fingers anymore. Parking in my garage is a real chore for us that sometimes takes 15-20 minutes, and the actuator and brakes working on the coach are obvious.
