Gerbing Wiring?

Looking to add some Gerbing equipment to the mix for next winter. Was wondering how many use the hard wired controller vs the portable controller and why. Ride safe.

Re: Gerbing Wiring?

I have a dual controller and I put in in my jacket pocket. I thought it would be easier to deal with a single connection to the LT's powerlet outlet when getting on and off. I have had this setup for maybe 9 years. It works but to be honest, if my controller rolls over the next one will be a permanent install.

The main reason is the 12 volt power plugs after the powerlet outlet are much easier to reattach and the being able to see the LED and adjust the controller dial easily without fishing in my pocket would make 'micro' adjustments much easier.

A secondary advantage is one less lead to deal with.
