Hello everyone. I'm a new owner of a 2015 Ford transit. Purchased from Manteno in Illinois. My fiance and I flew to Chicago Saturday morning and drove it back to Orlando. Took us 19.5 hrs, with a stop in Atlanta to see our god daughter. Totally impressed with the ride of the Transit. I purchased it to be my toy hauler for my race bikes. I race a Ducati 1199 Panigale with WERA in the South East region. List of mods will include:

Pit-Bull TRS trailer restraints
Transit wall and roof kit by Legend
Backup camera from
Air vent from maxxair
LED lighting in the cargo area
Rubbermaid FastTrack system with 84' & 48" rails
RV type connector for shore power and Battery and inverter for mobile power

I've been reading up on the shore power/battery power options, but no sure about exactly what I need. I would like to run off a separate battery (not the stock battery) while driving for laptops and race suit dryer and be able to run shore power at the track. I want this system totally separate from the OEM Ford electrical wiring. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings from California! I just bought a 2015 Transit Van myself, and I'd like to put Pit-Bull restraints in it as well. How did that installation go? Could you post, or send, some pictures of the interior?


Thanks! Are you going to install some sort of solid flooring, or just bolt the TRS plates to the floor through the rubber mat?

I lucked out with my local dealership, but I would rather make a trip like that than wait the 10-12 weeks that they're quoting for special orders.
