  1. I love the linoleum in a van. That's the first time I've ever seen that. I'm curious to see how do you fold the mattress when the 2nd row seats are up?

    Spoiler on.. add the hitch?

    What a mean-spirited post. Asks for opinions on a hitch that will only be used to brake-check other drivers on the road, then gets mad when people suggest not to do it.
  3. @Nico So reloading the vehicle software was the solution? What software specifically was reloaded? Was it the Sync3 software, or some other kind of onboard computer? I'd like to get specifics so I can ask my dealership to do the same. Thanks!

    Roof-top AC?

    I've only seen those Coleman Mach 3 on large RVs, like bus-sized ones. Maybe it's too much cooling power for a little Transit Connect?

    Simple bed

    @Banjeed That is such a good idea! I'm using a twin foam mattress from Ikea and it leaves really big and annoying gaps, especially by the doors. I've woken up out of the mattress several times. I'm definitely going to try your approach. Could you share a photo of how you store it while folded? I'm imagining the "winged" front part probably doesn't fit in the trunk, does it?
  6. @Don Ridley I have a 2019 TC purchased in the US, and it has this anti-theft horn. I didn't discover it until I was camping in the back of the van, locked the doors with my key remote, and went to sleep. In the middle of the night I rolled around, triggering the motion sensor and woke up to the most ear-piercing shrill sound I've ever heard coming from the wall. ­čśů So, yes. I can corroborate that it is the anti-theft horn.
  7. @jrm223 Yeah I thought about custom-building it online, but to be honest, I got some pretty good discounts at the dealership, and ended up paying well below sticker-price. So I guess I shouldn't be complaining!

    Hello from Huntington Beach, CA

    Yeah! I'm in Long Beach, but love to get up into the mountains whenever possible. What's the wooden platform for? Is that your sleeping setup? This is from our trip to Sequoia in 2019. We made some window covers and threw in a cheap foam IKEA mattress, and it's cozy as hell.
  9. After months of shopping and waiting, I finally got the roof setup I wanted! I bought these used rails+crossbars for $400 from another 2019 Connect owner who just had them removed: Rack-N-Road didn't want to install them because they would have to remove the interior lining, and they didn't want to run the risk of damaging the curtain airbags, so I had to go through the dealer at $750 for labor. Then we got a 16-cubic foot Yakima Skybox. It turned out to be wayyy more expensive and difficult than I ever expected it to be, but all in all, I'm very excited with the final result. Word of advice: Ask the car salesman to add a roof-rack system before purchasing the car. My salesman said it could be done for $500, but that was far from the truth. It's much cheaper to get them to do it before signing the paperwork than to figure it out on your own after signing!

    Hello from Huntington Beach, CA

    Very nice! Love the blue color. It's the color I wanted, but none of the dealerships in my area carried blue, so I had to get black. Could you add the locations to where the photos were taken? I'd love to know where some of those are. I think I see the snowy Eastern Sierra, & Death Valley, but I could be wrong.

    19 USB issue

    I had the same problem in my 2019. But the fuse you're looking for is in the passenger compartment´╗┐ fuse´╗┐ box that's under the glove-box, not the one that's under the hood. Check out the bottom of this page of the user manual, you're looking for Passenger Compartment Fuse Box, fuse location #18 "Wireless accessory charging module.": https://www.fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/vdirsnet/OwnerManual/Home/Content?bookCode=O140553&countryCode=USA&languageCode=en&marketCode=US&viewTech=IE&chapterTitleSelected=G1601001&subTitleSelected=G1971495&topicHRef=G1971498&div=f&variantid=7408&vFilteringEnabled=False&userMarket=USA I solved the issue not by changing the fuse, but by simply unplugging the 3 main plugs that connect to the fuse box. I think disconnecting and re-connecting them reset the computer and started supplying my USB plugs with power again. However, if that doesn't work for you, maybe you do need to change the fuse. Good luck! It was literally a pain in the neck to get my arms under the glove-box.
  12. Hey @Tom c what did the dealer end up doing to fix it? I'm having the same problem with mine. We get 10-15 minutes of power before it shuts off. I have to pull over in the freeway, fully take the key out of the ignition, open the driver door to turn off the electronics, and then turn the car back on to get power out of the outlet. Was the dealership finally able to fix it for you?
  13. No, sorry. I live in California, and already bought them from a guy who got rid of his. He did this camper conversion to his car, it looks awesome: https://ursaminorvehicles.com/campers/ford-camper-conversions.html
  14. Wow, what a pain in the neck. I have the opposite problem, I'm trying to install roof rails because my car came without them. I'm just going to take it to the dealer, however. I don't have the wherewithal to do what you did.
  15. @DonShockley, were you able to get the dealer to show you how to access the passenger compartment ´╗┐fuse ´╗┐´╗┐box?
