I check as much as possible once getting a vehicle home. They go from the trailer to the lift.
Okay, the TRX didn't, because it doesn't fit on the 4-post.

I did some digging around on some other FCA forums and apparently the “not fully seated”fuses are a fairly common thing across FCA products.

Confirmed. Loose fuses and relays in both places. My truck was built in April.

Thank you for the heads up!

I just checked mine under the hood, I would say 90% of them were unseated, some were barely installed. Thanks for the info!

@scottn Looks like your list just keeps growing.

Thanks everyone for the update. Will check in the morning.

There is two 7 mm fasteners holding that cover on at the very bottom. Make sure to remove them before pulling too hard on it.

About 2/3 of my engine bay fuses weren’t seated fully and about 90% of the interior fuses were loose on my truck.

Thank you the heads up!

You know I really do like the truck BUT with the very questionable build quality and the problems I have had may let it go for a Raptor R when they come out. Going to call my Ford contact and see about getting on a list. This puts an end to the exhaust I was planning and a light bar behind the grill. I am very sad actually had high hopes for this one. :(

Just dropped the panel on the drivers side and most were not seated completely. Glad this truck is so smooth off road otherwise some of those may have backed out sooner than later. Makes me wonder what else? Going to check the battery cables just for fun later when the rain clears out completely.

PSA #2: As folks have noted, the under dash fuses were just as unseated as those under the hood. After seating those under the hood, grab a 7mm socket and lower the dash kick panel and seat those loose fuses.

I only had one relay that wasn't fully seated under the hood. Either mine didn't get built on a Friday or my dealer PDI was above par.
