I don't really have a good spot to mount the hard wire plug in mind. where is everyone mounting theirs? I usually use the flush mount switch, but with wood and stuff the remote is nice. wireless would be best, but can't cash flow that, unless flimmy is having a barn burner sale on em lol! .

I was thinking that made it so it can plug under the dash from the inside so it keeps clear of tires and what not? or whats everyone else doing?

Have mine low in the middle of the dash it's out of the way and I use that remote and hold it in my hand when I'm plowing. Makes it way faster!

I never mounted the round, corded remote plug on my Rhino as I used only the dash switch. When I installed the winch in my Teryx, I mounted the remote plug-in on the passenger side of the vehicle. The idea, for me, was to use the dash switch most times, but for those rare times when I need to be outside of the vehicle, I wanted the plug to be in a position where I could have the best range of the cord.

Thanks chris, now I gotta decide which side to put it on. lol. 

I've mounted it temporarily under the hood a couple times and it seems to be more of a hassle than handy under there. so thats when I started to look for other places to mount it inside the cab area. 

But if I am winching the rhino itself and for most purposes I do prefer to use the dash switch. its super nice. but when I am pulling logs and stuff like that up a bank, on or off the road, or cutting firewood, clearing ect. I found that it is much nicer to be out of the rhino when winching stuff into you especially if I am running solo. which is quite a bit.

look above the winch on the blue plastic and you will see where I mounted the plug for my corded remote.



look above the 4 wheel drive switch you will see where I mounted the rocker switch. mounting it there I did not have to drill any holes. all I did was remove the black plastic screw and replaced it with a small nut and bolt.

You can see my rocker switch and the recepticle for the remote on my dash, just to the right of the light switch.  I've seen the recepticles mounted on the outside next to the hood latches, and I didn't want that because sometimes the rhino is on its side, and when that happens you can't get to it.  And I've seen a few mounted on the front, but I've had mine upside down a few times, and I would not have been able to get to it easily there either, getting to the cable was difficult enough.  I saw one recepticle mounted in the glove box, and I thought that was a great idea.  My point is that I think that I'll always have access to the interior of the rhino, but maybe not an exterior body panel when I need to use the remote.

My winch port for plug in remote is just below my 4x4 switch on the flat part of the dash. You can also see my Warn wireless winch remote in its cradle just under my AEM A/F gauge. I never have used the corded remote once but its in my dry box under my seat with other tools just in case.
