```K\$31 is an internal local variable that did not get get resolved.  These should
not show up.  This does not occur with the Mathematica version that I have

The form of the output is simpler if you provide a boundary condition such as
f==f0

soln = DSolve[{
f'[t]==Sign[p2*Exp[F2*t]-p1*Exp[F1*t]+p],
f==f0},f[t],t]//Flatten//Simplify

{f[t] -> (f0*(p - E^(F1*t)*p1 +
E^(F2*t)*p2) +
Sqrt[(p - E^(F1*t)*p1 + E^(F2*t)*p2)^
2]*t)/(p - E^(F1*t)*p1 +
E^(F2*t)*p2)}

Simplify[soln,
Element[{p,p1,p2,F1,F2,t}, Reals]]

{f[t] -> Piecewise[
{{f0 - t, E^(F1*t)*p1 >
p + E^(F2*t)*p2}}, f0 + t]}
