mine was hooked up under the seat into the wiring loom running to the rear light section, that way if you have an issue you are not working under the bike,it sits in the tool box caddy and runs down the inside of my hitch permanently, if you need pics, let me know as i am off today and can send you some, i just did a 6000 mille trip over 16 days and had no issues with the hitch, trailer or wiring., the hitch i installed myself, the wiring, i got a professional to do.Thanks for the info. I do have another question. Do I need to get anything special to hook up a pig tail for the lights. And does any one have suggestions as to hooking up the lights?
Pics would be great. Thanks for your help
