Default Power Reducer mounting location

Just picked up a reliance 30amp reducer. I have a 2011 Precedent. Anyone have issues mounting it on the plastic inside the battery compartment. Iím running 8vdc batteries and there is not a ton of space. I know they say they get hot but itís only 30amp and not going to be drawing that much. Problem is itís a lot bigger then most I have seen. Just wondering if anyone has mounted there.

I haven't mounted one on the plastic so I can't say if it gets too hot.

I have mine (as do a lot of others) mounted on the steel plate behind the front suspension. This is very solid and also acts as a heat sink. It is convenient to the dash wiring, especially if you are running it through the key (either with a 5 wire converter or a relay on a 4 wire converter).

I mounted one on a plastic inner fender once without issues. The best location should have plenty of air circulation for cooling. If you are concerned about melting the plastic you could use some standoffs to allow air to pass between the bottom of the reducer and the mounting surface.

The Precedent is designed to have the reducer mounted where yawood posted.

You should also get the Precedent specific converter harness adapter that is a plug and play right up on the front.

Do I have to remove the body to mount it to that location?

No, You just access it from the passenger side by turning the wheels or removing the front passenger wheel.

To connect the converter into the dash and bucket harness you need to remove the small dash insert where the key switch is mounted.
