Default How did you install your controller/solenoid

If you are like me, you upgraded your controller and solenoid. Well, I'm interested in knowing how/where you installed it. If you have pics, upload them!

For me, the original location of the controller and solenoid (weather proof box) is only large enough for my new 400/1000amp solenoid. I haven't decided where to put the controller (LGS 480amp). I may put it on the opposite side of the cart under the driver seat. But, I was hoping to turn that spot into a tool box.

So, how/where did you put yours???

Is your solenoid water resistant? I need to keep mine in a dry place. If I do mine like yours, the OEM plastic cover won't fit.

Also, in your signature you put "switch-posi rear end". What is this?

This is how I mounted mine. I did not think about whether or not the solenoid is water resistant. I will have to do some research. Maybe ScottyB can tell us. If not I will have to make a little cover for it some how.

Rabbit,

lots of questions for you..

1. How many solenoids do you have in there?

2. Is your solenoid mounted upside down?

3. Do you not care about water-proofing either?

Oletop,

Looks good. Real clean.

I like the idea of mounting the solenoid on the side of the body... hmmm..

Thanks Liberty,

I mounted it there because it would not fit under the weather proof cover . I can make something to cover it pretty easy if it is not weather proof. By the looks of it there are quite a few of us with exposed soenoids though. I will contact Scottyb and see what he says about the solenoid unless one of the other experts cares to enlighten us. It would be nice to know if I need to cover it.

Thanks,
David J.

I'm thinking that the solenoid is not water-proof because Scottyb email'd me and specifically told me that LGS controller was water-proof, but didn't say the solenoid was. Atleast, that's how I took it.

If we wait... he'll just post the answer here.. haha

If we build it, he will come.. haha
