PowerScope Trailer Tow Mirrors a Gimmick

Trivial, perhaps, but worth pointing out. The mirrors on the F-250 are power operated, so they can slide in and out depending on your towing purposes using a switch located in the cab. While the feature does work well, it seems over-engineered. Other manufacturers use a simple, manual setup for mirror control, which isn’t as likely to break and cost a premium to repair. Trucks should be convenient, but most of all they should work. This is just one more unnecessary feature than can malfunction.
