How did you mount the transponder back there? I am now thinking this will work better for me.

Any concern with plugs mounted on the bottom of the boxes? Wouldn't a gravity assist be your friend here? Or does it matter?
Not being critical just wondering if one direction is better than the other.

Anyone ever have a loose connection affecting instrumentation? Knees knocking against wires in flight or while entering/exiting? Kids in passenger seat with short legs kicking feet up into the connectors?

I realize the plugs are mechanically screwed into place, but thinking about any/all scenarios...
