Default Dash Startup Dusplay

Recently traded my 2017 F150 for a 2018 F350. Towing a 5th wheel necessitated the change. I like the dash Display to be the Speedometer on initial start up. But it almost always comes up in the trailer mode when I start the truck which I dont like and is the most useless setting IMO. I have had it stay and start in the Speedometer in the past but it seems every time I do another Camping trip pulling the 5er it then reverts back to the trailer page on start up even when theirs no trailer attached. There must be a way to make this change so it starts up on Speedometer? I know because its done it in the past however I have been in the towing start up page for over a month now and I cant figure out the sequence to have it start in the Speedometer mode. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA, Jim.

You will have to go into the trailer page and
manually tell it “no active trailer” or something like that then it will be on the speedometer page at each startup.

It shows no trailer attached in that section. I have gone and literally pressed every selection. Here's what comes up each time I start up. There has to be a way to set something else.

Well I stopped by a dealer yesterday and there person that is there expert came out to look at my problem. 30 minutes later he was still scratching his head and went back inside to look the problem up. 5 minutes later 2 guys came back out. The trailer section is where the problem was at. I watched the whole thing and the selections to me didnt make sense and you had to enter something that didnt look like a selection. (There was no OK boxed) But it was a section that said No trailer selected. He did get the trailer page off the start up page and I am back to Speedometer. Ford definitely didnt make that a easy task!
