When installing a tailgate light strip like the Putco Red Blade LED Tailgate Light Bar - Stop, Tail, Turn, Backup - 60" Long # P92010-60 on your 2021 Ford F-250, it sounds like you are getting an error message because the F-250 thinks there is a trailer plugged in when there isn't. The best bet is to use the 7-Way to 5-Way/4-Way Trailer Adapter for Vehicles with Lamp-Out Sensors Towing Trailers with LEDs # TR20141. Since this adapter has resisters built-in, it will eliminate the tendency for the "light out" sensor to activate on your truck. I went ahead and attached a video that walks you through the functions of the adapter.
