Installation Locations for Marinco

My Tiejtan Bumper is HD and cutting a 1 and 7/8 hole will be a chore. Where are you guys mounted your Marinco RV Plugs?? Could run a wire back to bed and mount there...

I have a plug in my bed that works for my bumper pull trailers as long as the trailer wire is long enough. You can also mount a bracket underneath your bumper that your rv plug fits into. I am not sure how to wire it but we have a local farm store that did all my wiring.

My Trailboss has some diamond plate steel flanges on each side that go from the center and taper out to the sides - you prolly have something similar. That allows the Marinco to face forward. A good hole saw will make pretty easy work of it. Just make sure to use silicon on the back side where the wires go in to keep out moisture and dirt from the wheel well.

If you don't have something like this, then you might want to fabricate a plate that you can bolt or weld in.

I never thought of going back to the bed, but even better might be if you have running boards - mounting it below the pinch weld and then you wont forget to unplug!

If you have a front license plate, make the plate hinged, with magnets rigged to hold it up when needed. Put the plug behind then plate. One of the users on here has pictures of his, i just cannot remember who (credit to them). I love the idea!

I mounted mine on the angled piece right below the headlight on my Kennesaw HD bumper. Just use a new hole saw and take your time, even a little lube won't hurt.
