gerbings panel mount

I installed the gerbings panel mount on my 08 wing beside the headlight adjustment. I would like to put one on the back for my wife, does anyone have any ideas where to put the panel mount for the passenger.

Use the left rear pocket door and mount the controls there. Can put the guts inside behind the door.... Just an idea !!

Thanks,

Here's where I mounted our Gerbings dual permanent controller and panel mount inputs. When it's cold enough for the heated gear I'm usually solo and use both to split out my boots and gloves from my jacket liner, but I also have an extension that can reach back to my wife when need be.

I use Powerlet sockets for my Gerbings, but you can apply the idea to yours. Since the passenger can't easily unplug from this spot, I use a right angle plug connected to a 12" long adapter cable so that she can reach it. My wife can easily operate the control in that spot.

I used some larger knobs I had laying around in a junk drawer to replace the tiny ones supplied by Gerbings. The small knobs are not easy to operate with gloves.





You said you already installed your driver position setup, but here is mine.

This is where I mounted mine. Just be careful to put it up high enough that it isn't in contact with the surrounding plastic when you close the door; about 3/4" up from the bottom should do it. I didn't even think about clearance, and it was a bit snug when I finished. Good luck with the project.
