I would guess that your truck is NOT a daily driver. Also I would guess that you do NOT always have a full tank when you park it for longer periods of time. Just a guess
The electronics of the sending unit are a little below the half tank point in the tank. When it is stored with the fuel level below the electronics of the sending unit the natural condensation in the tank collects on those electronics. If you try to keep your tank above the half tank mark when you park it this will help this issue.
This is my point of view, from what I have read and experienced for myself.
Recently I thought mine had gone out after having it parked for a longer period of time and only a 1/4 tank of fuel. I lucked out, because after fueling it up and after a few days it is acting just fine and I hope it continues to. I have learned that if I am going to park it even for quite a few days I am going to have a full or almost full tank.
Also I have read, and know of people, that have had theirs replaced that ford told them it went out due to condensation in the tank. The condensation would be reduced if the tank was full, or closer to full anyway.
