Turn on power ports when truck off?

I found this with Chevy Colorado's it was just moving a 50amp fuse up one peg.

So when we turn off the truck 2017 F250 the power ports inside no longer charge. Usually a default setting. Can I do this with the 2017 F250 just move a fuse? and the power ports will be active with the truck off and on?

Thank you

Edit:
WOW I see I am not alone out there.... I found the fix for the Chevy Colorado's I drive as work trucks within 5 mins. We charge Printers Phones and Computers in the work trucks, I leave my gear plugged in all the time day and night and never had a battery issue. New Devices stop charging once fully charged now. I hope there is a fix for this... When ones out camping leaving the key on all the time is asking for trouble.


EDIT: This is what I found... QUOTE" I've heard that FORScan can change the timeout of the power points, up to something like 18 hours. Default is one second." Guess that works...

A simple fuse move would have been much easier.

Forscan is the solution. The problem is protecting the batteries for starting, even in a diesel with two batteries. Using both 400w inverter plugs will drain two batteries in about 2 hours, because your converting 12 volt to 110 volt AC. As long as the truck is running no problem, I have two alternators totalling 400 amps. I plan to extend mine to 30 minutes, but I can't extend long as cold starts are especially demanding.

So I have forscan and tried all the code plugs to get the outlet to stay on after doors were open. Nothing worked. Bit the bullet last Friday took it to the dealer to get the TSB involving this problem done. Worked great I now have power after truck is off and door is open!

2017 f-super duty vehicles built on or before 22-feb-2017 may have timed 12 volt auxiliary power points that disable when the ignition is turned off and a door is opened.

Our truck's power point inside the 40/console/40 front seat configuration stays on for factory-default 75 minutes. I have a high-current adapter plugged into this power point.



Don't know about other configurations; you may have a try some of the others. See OM page 168.

The time out can be adjusted using FORScan.

HTH,

I used Forscan & set mine to never time out. No biggie to me because I know better than to use high demand devices without the engine running.

I did the same thing and it disabled my auto highbeams. Had to undo it.

Does your truck have the optional upfitter switches? Switches 5 and 6 can be set for "switched HOT always available" mode.
