  • Fitting Towing Accessories

    Hi, I have a new NS Exceed DiD A/T. I am about to fit various accessories to suit my caravanning excursions.
    Can anyone advise on the following:
    a. Where is the best place to mount an electric van Brake Controller? (the controller I have is a Tekonsha Voyager 9030). There seems to be very little knee/leg room under the dash and no substantial car part to mount the brake controller on.
    b. Where is the best place to mount a GME model TX3440 (all controls on the microphone hand piece) UHF Radio unit? I anticipate mounting the microphone plug in the Diff Lock button cap (which is not used), but where should I mount the microphone clip and the actual radio unit?
    c. I currently have rear vision mirror units which clip over the external window sill with a strap to the bottom of the door (used them on my previous Pajero) but do not like them. They are continually loose, scratch the windows every time they are raised and lowered and they slowly destroy the rubber molding on the window sill. Has anyone got any suggestions for a decent set of mirrors that extend out a fair way? I have tried the clip-on ones on the existing vehicle external mirrors but they do not extend out far enough.
    I look forward to your suggestions. Thanks. Fred

    The only one I can help you with is the TX3440. I just fitted one to my shorty. Mounted the processor under the passenger seat and ran the lead (gme supply and ext lead in the box) to the handset. I mounted the handset just under the passengers air vent in the centre console area (next to the climate control knob) but did not screw it in. I used that super wiz bang 3m sticky pad thingos and it works a treat. If I had a working digi cam i would post up a pic. The sound and clarity is pretty good even though its mounted under the passenger seat. (My passenger seat is not electric being a swb so there was ample room.)

      I have a Teshonka Prodigy break controller fitted. The location which seemed best for me is on the drivers side hard up against the centre console. Fitting the break controller there in its bracket just clears the lever for the fuel flap. It's also easily reached for manual breaking in case you need it.

      I find the Teshonka prodigy excellent with it's inertia sensing and it's easily adjusted for various circumstances with loads etc.

      Hope this helps

        Like grantw I'm about to get the TX3440 fitted - I was going to put the handset on the right hand side of the a/c controls, just under the drivers side vent (the opposite side to grantw). Thanks for the tip with the 3m tape grantw! The unit goes under one of the front seats. Mikens

          I am thinking about buying the TX3440 , just curious how you ran the antenna connection side of things. Do you have a bar, or should I say is the antenna Bar mounted. Wondering how you ran the coaxial cable to the antenna mount. i.e where in the fire wall do you pass the coaxial through.

            Hi

            Look here for clip on mike mount - have one in my NP and find it very good - no holes to drill in your vehicle etc.

              I put my Prodigy in the same spot, just above the fuel flap poppa. It's easy to manually control the brakes and easy viewing of the display, when driving straight.
