|These boxes were developed for builders who want a simple, light, all stainless box that will fit in tight places, as it does not extend forward of the firewall as far as a standard box. The box is available in both left and right units. The hole spacing is correct for the pre-punched holes in the RV-10 firewall, but they can be mounted on any firewall. For ease in cable routing, the arm on the box is adjustable using the provided lock nuts. Everything in the unit is stainless steel, including bushings and rivets. It is furnished with a closed-cell silicone gasket. Weight is 9.8 ounces and has a 2" inlet/outlet port. Please note that these boxes are a direct replacement for the aluminum box available from Vans. The RV-10 uses both a left and a right unit, and they also can be ordered separately. If you are not sure which one(s) you need, refer to your firewall plans drawings.|
