Burro Power Center Upgrade

Looking for advice on installing an all in one power center like the Precision Dynamics Inteli Power 4000 series in my 13' Burro. Specifically:

1) Where did you install it?
Any subsequent regrets on the placement and if so, where would you install
it now?
2) What brand and model would you recommend?
3) Do you happen to have a wiring diagram that would help me visualize it?
4) Would you make the same purchase again?

Thanks for the advice.

If you have the 13 foot Burro it is very similar to our 13' Uhaul. I installed a Progressive Dynamics 4045 in the vertical surface of the right rear seating. Hard to get at because we leave the bed made up all the time and baskets on slides are mounted on the floor. However I have never had to get at it to change a fuse or flip a breaker. It has a dozen 12 volt fused circuits and space for a few 110 breakers.

If you are wiring for 120 VAC also, or planning solar, and maybe even if only 12 VDC, I would avoid an install where the breakers and fuses are heard to reach only because I am frequently turning the converter, A/C, and even outlets on and off with the breakers. In fact, I gave up on keeping the cover over the breakers since I was taking it off all the time. An easy to reach battery disconnect also serves me well.

My battery disconnect is to the right in the photo, battery directly behind it. I made an extension handle to operate it. The original Uhaul converter was located behind the replacement, therefore my decision for location of the new one. Works for me.
