More notes.
After you crimp the lugs on the power cables wrap them in electrical tape to create a moisture barrier.

After you connect the controller cable connector to the one on the pump assembly wrap it to.

I ended up routing the control panel cable over to where the wires come up just behind the driver seat on the floor near the door. If you pull the plastic body panel cover in the drivers side foot well / entry step, you will see a ton of wires running front to back. just under the plastic black wire routing cover there is a body plug. If you pull that out you can fish the control panel wire bundle thru that hole, up and around the plastic wire routing cover. Then run it along the rest of the wire aft. put the foot well / step cover back in place. it snaps in place. It is now stored under the driver seat in a Tupperware bowl. PERFECT.

Bolting the feet on to the rams was a pain. Save installing them for last so they are not in your way. When turning the nut to tighten the feet on to the rams, the ram cylinder rotates with it. Luckily i had a 1/4 inch thick piece of rubber i was able to wrap around them, I then grab that with channel locks to keep from damaging the ram cylinder.

Wish the pump assembly was on rubber mounts. The pump motor is really loud. Some vibration isolation would help that a bunch. Maybe one day if it really does bug me i will cut some skate board truck cushions in 1/2 and install them between the frame and pump assy.

Just curious, what size Tupperware, bowl or flat. Tired of stepping on wires. I think Bigfoot makes a wireless controller.
