I have a 2018 F-250 Crew Cab short bed 4x4 FX4 and a 2018 Boss 8'2" XT V plow. I try to plow as much as I can in rwd unless it's really slick my smartlink has given me a couple traction control faults and in the middle of a push in the last storm I had a power flicker in the truck. Should I turn traction control off?

Agree, I always turn it off.

You've had that issue too?
It's doing what it's supposed to do, but I find it annoying. If you're driving on a snowy road, for example, and you turn onto a side road where the town plow left a small windrow so you give it a little gas to get through, the tires will slip (since you're driving in snow) and the computer thinks you're going to crash so it kicks on the abs and kills the throttle.

Issues ya....no

I have issues already, my Trac isn't one of them.

I also like to switch back and forth and plow in 2 high.

My habit is

Press tow/haul
Engine brake on
Traction control off
Lock differential
Shift into Dozer mode (D)

Shift into four-wheel drive when needed, shift back into 2-wheel drive to power spin/drift away from the plie.
