Superwinch on 2017 Foreman.

I got a 3000lb Superwinch and installed it with the mount.. That part was a pain in the azz... especially since the skid plate won't go back on one side because the bolt doesn't feel like screwing back into the hole.. so I have to tie wrap it.

Now I was trying to find a place for the solenoid and
I thought the back trunk (storage space) was going to be a good place because I'll never use it.. so I mounted it there, just to realize the 6gauge cables aren't long enough to reach it.

Now I have to find another place to mount it and I am lost. The battery compartment is too small. I ain't a mudder or like to go through rivers.. all I'm doing is plowing snow and yard work, so I don't need the solenoid in a super water tight space..
Any suggestions?

Its supposed to go in the back under the plastic cover under the rack..

I managed to fit my Warn solenoid in there, my bike is at my property or I'd show you... I actually am having a hard time remembering... It was tight...

I do remember that..
I would.

It stay clean in there... Don't do it externally...

Did you take your entire plastic shield off to access the engine area?

Is there nowhere?

I just followed the instructions that came with mine... It said to put it in that little compartment.. i didn't really look...
