Where it is mounted will have little impact on it's performance, so aesthetically it is above the refer in the 21, in the 19 it is below the dinette.

This makes sense in my case. My controller has nothing to switch on or adjust. Just three LEDs. The alligator clips have to attach to the terminals so they have to be inside.
