I'm hoping that with less heat, vibration, dirt and moisture, the controller has a chance of lasting longer. Something to consider...
That's an interesting thought that I had not even considered. I'll put it to my RV tech and defer to his expertise and decades of experience. Thanks for taking the time to share it.

I mounted my SMI right behind the battery. Not much space there. I wish I had thought of some place else. However, it has been there for nearly 15,000 miles now so I hope it keeps going.
