mounting Big Foot controller

We have a 2015 Sunseeker 2500 with the Big Foot cable coming from under the driver's seat. We lay the controller with cable wrapped around it in a slot in the engine cover. It comes unraveled. The cable is laying on the floor and sometimes gets stepped on, which is not good. Where do you mount your controller box and how to you keep cable out of the way? Run the box under the seat and Velcro inside the unit? Thanks

Don't understand, mine is mounted and located in the counter wall on the left when you walk in, do you mean it's not mounted anywhere?

No. It is not mounted. There’s Velcro on the back so we can choose where. But can’t seem to find a good spot

You can't cut in a wall by the entry door? Or route it to a storage area? I used to have a screen on my old unit mounted on a bracket in one.

mounting Big Foot controller

On these units the box was attached to a 5' Umbilical. You can actually stand outside the drivers door or stand inside to level. Not a bad way, just different.
On my 2014 3170 the box and Umbilical is stored under the drivers seat. My box has Velcro on the back to attaches to the side of the inside seat frame. The Umbilical is just coiled up under the seat. Sometimes it is handy, sometimes it is a pain but, that is about the only place to store it. The box is too bulky to just stick to the dash or anyplace else. When it is stored, it does not get stepped on.
The level controller is mounted under the drivers seat as well and the Umbilical is plugged into the back. Not sure where the newer units have the control box mounted.
I would like to see a picture of your controller mounted on the engine cover.
Witch Doc, we can not just cut a hole. We do not have a wall mounted controller. I will see if I can take a few pictures.

Yes, please take a picture, I understand the post, but you can still reroute the cord, might have to drill some holes, but you could mount it on a bracket in a locker, is my idea. My old screen was mounted that way. I just use to park open the locker and press auto. Once that was done, I closed the locker and opened my slides. When leaving, I put the slides in then open the locker and hit retract. Need to see it.

Where is that brain located now? The panel is the same as mine mounted in the stair well. That controller must be behind my fireplace which is next to the entry wall. I wonder if you can get a extension to move the controller to a locker and then mount the face panel to a wall? I personally would not like that remote. I'll take a picture in the AM and post where they put mine, it's not a Sunseaker, but a Concord, but pretty much the same.

The brain is located under the drivers seat. If memory serves, you could get a wireless replacement but It was $$$$ and not sure if it iS still available. Been living with mine under the seat for 5 years.

UK, give Bigfoot a call, have your serial number ready and check on options.
