fifthwheel plug location

So I received my reese 18K elite fifthwheel hitch today, and was wondering where everyone prefers their in bed rv style plugs. I have never seen one any place other than behind the wheel well area, but reese recomends in front of the wheel well so you can never be crushed. Any opinions?

Hmm , mine is in the back driver side corner . Seems to work great . My old truck was there too so I guess I have no other experience to compare to but I never had a problem with it there .

Yeah, I'd never even heard of it until I was looking at the instructions after ordering the hitch. Now I have enough cord to reach the front driver's side, and will probably end up putting it in the back.

I'm with you,,
Why drill more holes and splice more wires? Use what's already there.

I did that with the dodge and don't want to scratch the tailgate on this one yet.

It's a premade harness that you unplug the back of the reciever plug, plug one into the back of the reciever,one into the factory wire plug. No splices.
Besides. I thought i'd asked where they were prefered in the box. Not if you liked them in the box. Also, my cousin has ripped three out that way with his cattle trailer until he installed one in bed.
