How and where would be the best mounting location?

EasyStart Can be mounted in any position except with the wiring harness pointing up. This is because the capacitor in the box cannot be mounted with its bottom as the highest point. Any mounting that maintains this position is acceptable.

The EasyStart enclosure is rated IP65 which means it can have direct weather contact. For best longevity, EasyStart should be mounted in a more protected area whenever possible. Do not block evaporator airflow with EasyStart or place EasyStart in the evaporator hot air flow as this can cause failure in EasyStart and undesirable air conditioner operation.

Physical mounting methods include double sided foam tape, screws and zip ties. Be very careful using screws or drilling as refrigerant tubes can easily be punctured.
