If I had a new truck I would not use a tune to turn it off. The tune may void the powertrain warranty if Ford detects a tune (maybe)

Easiest fix is what Big Block Ranger posted.
A simple plug into the trailer connector will cause the truck to detect it has a trailer hooked up and it will automatically disable the start/stop.

All it has to do is detect a small light bulb drawing power thru the trailer connector

Maybe I should buy some of these 4 pin connectors and wire in a small light bulb and sell them as the cure for the start/stop.

I'll be rich.....lol
