I will add a "thank you" as well and mention that it worked great on a 2018 model.

I just installed the brake control module on my 2016 f 150 and I down loaded the extended license and when I follow the video on how to activate it, It is still telling me that I need the extended license, could there be something I am doing wrong.
Thanks

From the videos I've seen, the Trailer Brake Control Gain Settings must be enabled. This is found in the IPC module. I too, am attempting to activate the TBC on a 2017 F150. I just received the OBDLink MX today. I'll try either tonight or tomorrow and let you know how it turns out.
Installed my own TBC and had to also install power using Ford's $67 wire with a fuse official fix for their screw-up on early 2018s (no fuse pins in #24) Now after just flashing it with Forscan, it seems to be working fine with the "No Trailer Attached " message and it will adjust gain on the display However hooking Forscan back up ...it shows a DTC code U0423 from Trailer Brake Control Module.(Invalid data received). No check engine light... I wonder how I can ge rid of it? Or will it disappear on its own? Tried disabling and enabling a second time. same result.
Besides this code, which reappears each time I reun Forscan, all seems normal. Any Ideas?

Has anyone been able to enable the TBC and TBC Gain with one of the USB ELM like this one?
