  1. I use an ArkPak 730 with my Battle Born 100Ah 12V LiFePO4 Deep Cycle Battery. It works great, but not inexpensive.
  2. I thinking of replacing my stock TC battery with a  Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM battery to power my 12v compressor fridge and Maxx fan when camping. How long can you run your fridge before you need to run the vehicle to recharge the battery?

  3. The Sam's Club Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM battery is like the original, just slightly bigger, but still fits and can still use the original top bracket. The posts are exactly in the same place as the original. If I remember, pulling the air cleaner and bellows assembly will give access to removing the battery.

    GOT IT!!!

    I swapped my headlight bulbs with HIKARI LED Headlight Bulb Conversion Kit -H11 back in May 2018. I still like them, although they are not perfect. I had to re-aim the lights down, not a big deal. They are much brighter and are white instead of the dim yellow stock bulbs. There's no distinct cutoff line like HID's, but I still like them much more than stock bulbs. I think they were about $69. on Amazon.
  5. I have a new Ford Escape with Adaptive Cruise Control and Stop-N-Go. The 2019 TC works exactly the same, which is great! My co-worker at Ford has tested one and said it works just like the other Ford vehicles.
  6. Thought I'd give you guys an update on the AGM battery in my TC (bought at Sam's Club). I've been using it in the TC for a year now. Currently on a month long trip in Florida and using the fridge 24/7. All is good. Great vehicle, love it! I will buy another one when the time comes.

    To combat road noise

    Steven, try rotating the tires front to back to see if the noise stays exactly the same. If it changes, probably tires, if not get it checked out. Tom
  8. Hi Ford-diesel, sorry, I just now saw your reply. It actually took 4-months. My dealer told me it could take as long as 6-months. It's built in Spain and 4-months seems the normal amount of time for a US order. I ordered in September and it arrived at the dealer in January. I didn't pick it up untill March because thats when my Ford Edge lease was up.

  10. Thanks everyone for the comments. So far, really liking it! I swapped out all the interior lights with LED's (7 of them), nice and bright now!

    New TC Owner - Hi Everyone

    Welcome JT3! Looks great!!
  12. Yes, I confirm, the AGM battery fit is good, plenty of room all around and especially on top. The plastic cover that fits on top makes sure nothing will ever touch the terminals. It's more protected than most vehicles. In 2019 the TC will have start-stop technology. All Ford start-stop vehicles automatically come with AGM batteries.
  13. I put the Sam's Club Duracell Group 48 (H6) AGM in my 2018 TC last week (Thanks to Beta Don for recommending it!). It fits well. The top bracket that crosses over the top of the battery fits on tight, but it does work! I bought this battery in December, put it in my 2016 Ford Edge for a month long trip to Florida. I ran my ARB Fridge/Freezer non-stop 24/7 set at 36F degrees for the whole month, and it was plenty hot in Florida. The battery works great! I pulled it out of the Edge and put it in my new TC.
  14. Yes, it's a Weathertech BumpStep. It works well as a step, but I like it in case someone bumps into me, which has happened on my other vehicle and saved my rear door from getting smashed in. I also have the wider version called BumpStep XL (24" wide), but it was interfering with my back-up sensors, this BumpStep 12" wide one doesn't.
