Depth Finder install 07 RXT
Wiring in the oem depth finder kit and thinking of using a different wire routing than instructions call for. They want you to run the wire along the coolant hose up and over the tunnel...then around the entire motor to fuse box. Can anyone think of why it would be a bad idea for me to run the wire directly along side the reverse cable, zip tied, straight under the motor with small left turn to fuse box? be a lot cleaner and less run of wire. Only bad thing is the Deutsch connector harness out of Depth finder would land about 4-6 away from fuse box so the matching harness I'd have to cut and mod for the shortened distance...easy enough with plenty of terminal in hand.

You can run the wire where ever you want. You can also tap into the diagnostic connector if you want. CANhigh and CANlow can be tapped anywhere not just the fuse block.

Easier and cleaner to just dial the wires into the fuse block in their open spots. WH-RE = D8 = CAN-HI, WH-BK = E8 = CAN-LOW so no cutting elsewhere. 3 wires to fuse block & 1 gnd to connect. I have the right terminals, think I even ordered them off a link you once posted. I got one of those infamous oem kits with the missing 07+ harness so I took the supplied pre 07 harness and reworked it so all 4 pins of Deutsch connector match the Depth Finder plug and run it to fuse box. Instead of the 6'+ I was going to use, per instructions, now it's only about 6" long and not draped all the way around the damn motor.
