Simple to fit , everything needed supplied , my only thing I would change is the cable I would prefer a single cable from dew heater to controller or at least an option when ordering also add a few self adhesive cable clips to allow for cable to be attached to ota , I modified a hole used to keep white trim in so I could pass cable out ota and still use ota end cap, easily modified with a flat file also you need to groove the plastic trim so allowing cable space without snagging ,
