Good location for Heat Troller control on LT?

Any good pictures on how to set up your LT for heated gear. Creative ways or places to position the heat troller specifically. Going to Canada next month so I bought a heated warm and safe jacket. I am wiring directly to the battery and would like to minimize amount of exposed wires and keep bike looking fairly clean. Ideas and pictures would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Tom

Re: Good location for Heat Troller control on LT?

Mine are mounted on the left side of the dash(opposite of the H/L adj.) with the connections/plugs mounted just forward of the intercom plug on the "Stingray".Passengers are mounted with the rear radio control panel on the trunk/rear case. Sorry I don't have any pics.

Re: Good location for Heat Troller control on LT?

I have my dual controller clipped inside my Chicane tank bag on a divider. Inside the tank bag the divider is on an angle where I just see the top edge. The controller clips on this edge and the adjustments then look right up at me. The power comes from under the front of the seat and connects in the bag. The two output wires come out of the bag and go right under my jacket. It's all right there in front of me since the bag has two zippers, one on each side so the closure point is at the bottom, center of the bag for the wires to exit between the two zippers. I find that it's such a clean setup I forget to unplug when getting off the bike at times.

HTH,
Jer

Here are two pics I've saved to help me when I get around to that task.

Re: Good location for Heat Troller control on LT?

I am not home now to post pictures, but I installed two heattroller controls, one on each side of the radio display. The HeatTroller units allow you to split the little pc board in two to seperate the LED from the Potentiometer, so I put the LEDs above the potentiometer knobs in the space in the fairing piece to the sides of the radio knobs. (2001 LT)

It made a VERY nice install, looked like they belonged there.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
