Does it really matter? Would up on the roof where it will be under a panel be better than if it was down an the curved side? I know I want it right over the electric room and I can wire it later to the panels when I mount them.

I think you need to give more details. Not sure what you are talking about.

Are you talking about the interface between the outside and inside?

Yes, commonly referred to as an entry gland.

I am thinking that as long as the seal is maintained, you can locate it most anywhere. I would think the only real exception is mounting it upside down so that the wire entry points would be exposed to the elements.

I put mine right in the middle on top of the roof next to my panels. Made sure it was sealed up good......

I have mounted them on the roof under one of the panels.

I mounted them with the glans facing aft.

Plenty of buytl tape.

No leaks
