Default 2011 RSS Question

Hello All - recently purchased 2011 F150 4WD Super Crew King Ranch. Towed boat for the first time this weekend. trailer has trailer brakes and i noticed that the RSS turned off automatically. read where this is normal but can not figure out how to re-engage it once trailer has been disconnected. when i put it in reverse it shows "off". can not toggle up or down to engage it.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!

Something sounds wrong. Mine works as soon as I disconnect the trailer. At least the beeping does. But IIRC there is an issue with the colour displays showing how close objects are? It's been a awhile, but that stuff wouldn't come back on? And I sort of forgot about it ...

Actually I found that colourful display totally distracting. So distracting that I once was turning while backing and forgot to check my front corners. Oops. Almost disaster. So I think I turned it off and forgot it.

There was a thread about this last year in the main part of the forum ...
