First, thanks to Old Skeeter for the suggestion on mounting the charger externally of the boat. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcby6NnuzvlIo2PfJAJfFVA
This video describes how I created a wall mounting bracket to hold my Minn Kota MK315D Charger. The mounting bracket articulates and swivels so the unit can be tucked in against the wall or extended out during boat charging operations. With my unique design the mounting plate can be removed from the wall mounted bracket for use in charging other items around the house i.e. car batteries, lawn mower batteries etc. Instead of cluttering up your boat with the unit and adding another 12 pounds to take along on each trip you have the ULTIMATE solution for your battery charging needs.

A little information on the Anderson Power Pole connectors that I used on my Retrofit.
The crimping tool is not cheap but I wish I had purchased this tool and used this crimping system years ago.
