Interesting spot, never thought of that...what I like about this location, it'll give me room to stuff small items between the hitch and side bed.
If the plug is in the side bed, lose that space due to plug and wire attached...thinking, thinking

I have worked on collisions where 5ers have been driven into the tv cab from a rear hit and also tv rear ending another vehicle and the momentum of the trailer keeps going while the tv has come to a stop. Also seen many beds, frames and hitches mangled from blow outs uneven terrain and sudden stops or running off the road with a load. That said any extra structural components or reinforcement can potentialy save the lives of passengers in the event of the unpredictable.
Agree with you 100%, but a small hole in a formed support is not going to help anything in the incidents you mentioned. Appreciate your concern tho'. Charging 1+ hrs to remove 4 screws and unscrew and tape 6 or 7 wires is a little exhorbitant unless that includes re-installation.

I have mine between the wheel wells and the FRONT of the bed. I like it better up there as I don't have to crawl between my bed rails and 5er to plug it in (or between the open tailgate and 5er). I normally don't carry anything in front of the hitch so I'm not losing any storage space with it.

I've read that the best area is between the fender and tailgate on the driver's side...anyone have suggestions on Do's or Dont's welcomed
Here's mine, I opted to not drill a big hole in my bed.
