    RMP anchor light wire routing

    Can I get some guidance on routing the wires to the RMP anchor light on a blade? Not sure if I need to provide slack or keep the wires tight. Tried both ways and it seem like I either get wires hanging out of my blade when retracted or I stretch & break them. Thanks

    I gave my lines just enough slack that I could use some heavy duty gorilla tape to secure them on the front half of the pole and then I secure them to the hydraulic lines with a zip ties every foot or so until the wires are inside the boat.

    I ran mine inside the PP. The instructions said to do it that way and have never had a problem.

    I never read the instructions, but common sense told me to run wiring inside of the U Channel. I just used heavy duty tape and taped the wiring to the center of the U channel
