I got my Tekonsha P3 trailer brake controller today, with the #3040 Toyota OEM harness. The cable is about 2 feet long. In reading the installation instructions, it looks like it can be mounted at any angle from front to back, with the back pointing towards direction of travel, but must be level side to side. Where does everyone have theirs mounted? Pics would be appreciated.

Thanks Ken, I will put mine in the same place. One question, how easy is it to put in and out? Do I have to remove that panel to do it? Not that it's a deal breaker, just for my own info.

I never take mine out.. But if you needed too, you pop that panel that it is in, which is the hardest part, then remove your two screws and unplug it from the back of the unit. If you never wanted to put it back, I would buy a spare plastic piece.

I guess the only reason I would take it out is how infrequently I would use it, and the fact that it is always on. At least, when I plugged mine in to test it, it had power and there isn't a power switch.

Correct, no power switch. Only thing that bugged me at first was the display, but after a little tweaking, I don't even notice it.

Big Red. The P3 automatically turns off after a little while. No worry about a drain on the Battery.

Thanks guys! I will try to mount it over the weekend. Displays don't bother me, between the clock, my stereo, and the LEDs from my switch bank. Having the P3 down low there I will never see it.

Bevo and Roo out at Mueller SP, CO = Awesomeness!

Going from 600' to 9,800' elevation hurts at first, but once you see the views... You forget about the pain.

Bevo got a photo op with Pike's Peak and the moon in the background, great park!
