    Default Wiring heated gear 2020 RT

    Looking to run some wires for heated gear on my 2020 RT Limited from the battery back.
    Any idea or suggestions on an easy or good place to run the wires?
    On the 2015 RT Limited I removed all the panels, basically stripped it down to run the wires and hide them, I was wondering if there is a little easier way?

    Thanks

    I did the same, but I placed the connector in the center of the blank switch.

    I ran from the battery up into the glove box. I won't be riding dual in the cold weather and I just leave the glove box unsnapped while using the 12v cord. Seemed easy to do for me I might at some point change it but it seems fine for Doug just the way it is. Not fancy but gets it done and I didn't have to pull any panels off. Just used a long plastic wire tie up under the panel and pulled it into the glove box.

    I mounted mine lower on the left and the passenger one next to the heat switches. Both are run directly to the battery, which has the added benefit of being able to plug my battery maintainer into either one.

    I like that location. I am going to see what it takes to get to that one.

    That's very well done. Are SAE receptacles easily sourced?

    Yes. A quick search will find them. I can't remember exactly where I got these from. They have a standard SAE disconnect plug on the other end of the cable (about 6-8 inches long). This allows me to unplug the passenger one whenever I need to remove the side panel by the grip.

    Well it took me longer than it should have. Twin 3 year old grandsons were here for the weekend and needed my attention, and I was happy to give it.
    Here are the end results

    Thanks so much for all the input from everyone.

    A shout out to Bajaron for steering me in the right direction diffe new wiring leads!

    If you do it while you are doing an oil change, you'll save some work.
