Default Sahara Regulator mounting

I just purchased two Super Sahara voltage regulators with Fans and need to know if there is a certain way to mount them or is there a certain way not to mount them due to the cooling fans?????

Default Re: Sahara Regulator mounting

well any reg that gets hot enough to need a fan should not be mounted inverted. That and doing something like wrapping it in foam are major no-no's. Other than that just make sure it has good air circulation. Fromeco is big on using 3M dual lock, I use it to mount all my fromeco stuff, see the pic in this thread:


good luck, just remember however you mount it air circulation is the #1 priority.
