Gerbing 12V Panel Mounted Port 4.6 5 30 30
Cheap stiff plastic I bought this item last year for my heated gear so I could plug in easily and keep the rain out of the connector. Easy installation and if you tape the connector wires together it will hold without a problem. Where there is a problem is with the cap. When the weather got a bit cooler, 50 degrees, the plastic cap became stiff and after the third use it just broke off leaving the connector exposed to rain. It may be inexpensive easy to instal and over all a good idea but the cheapness of the plastic makes it a waste of money. July 14, 2014
Great Product and Easy Install This was an easy to install, under 15 minutes, option to hide the heated gear cable on my 2014 Electra Glide. Installed on my heat shield easily. I would suggest this for anyone that has a Harley Davidson touring bike and heated gear. June 30, 2014
Perfect for the job This fitted to my bike perfectly, am very happy with the result March 30, 2014
Doesn't work Doesn't work. Tried installing this on two different bikes. The wire pulls out when the bike is moving. No tension on the wire. Just wont stay plugged in. February 26, 2014
No more dangling wires. I installed the panel mounted port on the mid-frame air deflectors on my Harley Ultra Classic so I wouldn't have the wires to plug my heated gear into hanging out around the seat area. This really cleaned things up and no more hunting for the wire or dangling wire hitting the saddlebag. Only wish I'd done this sooner. Great addition and very reasonable price. February 24, 2014
Really cleans things up I was so tired of seeing that cable hanging there for me heated jacket, and having to stuff it up under my seat or pull it out of there. I thought of the idea of making a permanent mount somehow, and then I saw this nifty little item from Gerbing. It's exactly what I had in my mind. I mounted it on the left plastic heat shield below the front of the seat. All I had to do was drill on hole and just keep making it a little bigger until the threaded portion would fit through. Start to finish takes about 10 minutes, only because I had to remove my seat to run the cable down thru to the back of this. Great solution. December 23, 2013
Glad I bought it. Hated to drill my bike but glad for the one handed plug-in. Has a clean look to it. Way better than a loose wire from under the seat. November 11, 2013
works great This was easy to install, and I used it on my recent trip to Alaska with no problems even with several days of riding in the rain. October 24, 2013

John L asked: Really curious, will this product work with the coax connection of the Powerlet rapidFIRe Heated Glove Liner Kit?
I'm not really finding an equivalent panel mount port by Powerlet.

Daniel B: I've found the Powerlet coax connectors to be interchangeable with Gerbings connectors. Im using the Powerlet Rapidfire dual wireless temp controller with Gerbing's gear and the Gerbing battery connector harness that was already on the bike.
The coax connection appears to be a "standard" connector for Powerlet RapidFIRe, Gerbing, Venture, Warm & Safe, Tourmasters and possibly other brands.

Jeff S: I mounted this on my left side and use the curly Q extension cable (looks like a telephone handset cord) and then plug that into the jacket. That gives me room to get off of the bike if I forget to unplug without causing any damage. It still keeps the cords manageable and neat when I'm riding.

Great product and keeps everything clean and very functional.

A shopper asked: This panel-mounted port did not come with installation instructions. What is the purpose of the two rubber bushings? Do both of them need to be used? Where, exactly, do they get installed? Nov 30, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Joe W: Although I still haven't installed mine yet, the instructions included with my panel mount assembly state that the nylon shoulder washer is used only when mounting the panel mount assembly to a metal panel, to insulate the shaft. Dec 2, 2013
Reply to Joe Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
A S: Joe is correct, the rubber insulators are used when mounted in metal that contacts the battery ground. If not used, the dual heat controller will not allow independent heating of gloves and jacket. Turn one side on and both the jacket and gloves will heat. Dec 29, 2013

John R: It has been some time since I installed this product. I do not remember if there were 2 rubber bushings. As shown in the photo, there is a "bushing" with the protective plug. If there is a second rubber bushing, put it on the inside. Dec 3, 2013

A shopper asked: How does the Gerbings port work with the gerbings heat controller? Permanant mount vs portable mount? Dec 6, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lukas V.: I'm not entirely sure I understand exactly what you are asking, but I'll take a stab at it.

The Gerbing's port is a coax power port that runs straight from your battery. If you have the permanent mounted heat controller the cable runs from your battery to the control dial mounted somewhere on the bike, and then continues on with a female plug you would then plug your heated gear to. If you have multiple heated pieces, you would need the dual heat controller, at which point you would have two plugs to plug the gear into.

If you have the portable controller the cable runs directly from your battery and ends in a female coax plug (with a fuse box in the cable). You would then plug the portable heat controller in to, say, your jacket, and plug the other end into the bike. If you had a jacket and gloves, you would plug the gloves into the jacket, and the two cables from the jacket (jacket plus gloves) into a dual controller, and then from the controller, one cable would lead to the bike.

Whether you should go with permanent or portable is really a matter of preference. If you want to be able to take your heated gear on other bikes, the portable is helpful. If you don't care, then the permanent might be a little easier because you don't have to find a location to stash the portable controller (on your belt, in a pocket, etc).

I personally have the jacket liner and the gloves, along with portable dual controller and love them.

Tiger9650: This panel mount port would be used to connect the portable heat controller. I recommend going with the wireless controller offered by First Gear or powerlet (same units). It will plug right into this port. It works well to get the coiled extension cord to go from the jacket controller to the port. This will give you more range of movement getting on and off bike without unplugging from the port. Mar 12, 2012

GSownerinDC: I can only speak to the permanent mount heat controller, but it works flawlessly. There is a simple plug connection that directs power from the controller knobs to the ports. If you wanted to put them in entirely separate places (like more than twelve inches from each other) you'd need some extension wiring, but otherwise it is plug and play. Mar 12, 2012
