I put mine between the wheel wells and the front of the bed so I could attach it without having to squeeze myself between the camper and tailgate to reach it. The other reason is that Chevy has all the wiring for a bed plug bundled up under the front of the bed, and it would hot have reached behind the wheel well.

Well it's done. Took a whole 10-15 min. Had 9 ft of cable and only needed about 4, since harness is at back of bed. Now just waiting on the tpms system.

Cool. Hope you got it high enough. I got mine too low and have to redo it.

Put it about 1/4 way down from bed rail. Hopefully that will work , picking up 5th wheel in couple of weeks will know for sure then.

I liked the position on my 2005 F350 the best. Just forward of the hitch on drivers side. My 2012 F250 with the '5th wheel prep package" came with the 7-pin connector located farther back close to the tailgate.

While both positions work well, the forward position is safer since you're not reaching or sticking your head under the trailer to connect or disconnect the plug.

Here is the location that I've used in both of my trucks. Works for me. You'll like the two locations.

Mine is just a couple of inches lower than that, but it is too low. My arms are just a tad too short.

Here's where Ford is putting them with the factory "5th wheel prep package". I do like it but I prefer it in front of the fender-well so I don't have to be under the front of the trailer to connect...

Yeah, that's better VenturaBill. I like that. I'm going to move mine up that high, but I think forward about 6 to 8 inches.
