Where to put heated gear controller
« on: December 08, 2018, 10:00:46 PM »
I attached three strong magnets to the back of my heated gear controller. It’s not going anywhere unless I remove it. Just some duct tape on the back so it won’t scratch the tank.

I put a velcro on the left side - of the tank and behind the controller. I used to have it on the front but realized that I hit the controller too much and keep changing the settings so I moved it to the left side.

When it gets in the way, it's easy to move ;-)

My Hot Wired electric liner has the controller hanging down from the left side of the liner.  I like not having to find a place for the controller.

I know Phil zip-tied his controller to the front break fluid reservoir.

Same here, just reachable under the jacket base for easy access. Some of those controllers look huge!
