My cable enters the unit in the back and disappears into the camper. Looked underneath..and I would have to take down the belly cover to access it. Not a shot in Heck that's happening. All campers are different. And no access in the camper either. Sucks. Had to resort to the "hang-on" type. But I have devised a way to secure it so no one can steal it.

Hey TWP....I had the same issue as you. I ended up installing it behind my converter. It was tight but it works. I mounter the display right next to the converter.

Access to the back side of the power panel was pretty easy on the 5th. The back wall of the basement comes out and it's wide open. I located the remote display like Camping did. I had a pole-mount for the HTT and was always concerned that it would go for a walk-about or I would forget it. Neither happened in the 2-ish years I used it tho. But a built-in is much more convenient and I know it won't get lost.
I've developed the habit of turning the main breakers off in the panel when packing up. I like watching the display telling me everything is OK before I snap the breaker on when setting up.
