Default REDARC Tow pro module location???

Hey guys got my redarc tow pro elite unit today and I am wondering where a good mounting location is for the module? Where did you mount yours? Another one: where from to pick up the brake light signal? Close to the sensor at the brake pedal or from the trailer wiring loom?

Just in the process of installing one in my JKU. I bought this wiring kit https://www.autoelec.com.au/electric...rol-wiring-kit and this http://www.jeepkonection.com.au/APil...idgeRUG1723559 plus this https://www.sparesbox.com.au/part/re...ersal-tpsi-001 for the remote control so I don't have to drill the dash. I have run the cable from under the steering wheel to the left rear tail light where ill pick up the brake light feed and connect the elec brake line to the trailer plug harness. I'm making up a bracket for the main unit to sit behind the removable panel under the steering wheel. I've run the power cable through the foam filled hole on the drivers side into the engine bay and mounted the circuit breaker to a spare bracket on the drivers side. Will post some pics soon.

Ditto except I used some industrial strength double sided tape to attach the unit to the steel plate just to the right behind the panel under the steering wheel.

Regards,
Rod.

Looked into the same panel. Mine is carrying a electronic module there with a heat sink. Not sure how much heat comes from there. (Didnt drive it much lately)
But if there is heat maybe not the best spot. Did you look in the ctr console behind the net.? Maybe something there available - need to check myself today.

Not sure if you were referring to my post but mine is also a 2012. The metal panel is to the right behind the under steering wheel panel. Can't remember what it's for.
