This is a great point. I have been debating this myself and your point has convinced me as long as the electrician can make it work. Thanks for posting!

I mounted my control panel with a part of a satellite dish mounting system. The part on the back of the panel will allow me to add some tilt angle to the panel and allow me to turn it side to side. It is then mounted to a patio mount stand. The plan will be to have the bottom bracket behind the panel and out of the way but I need bricks to counter weight or it will tip over.

Mine is a BCS controlled system. I went with Kal's stand and stuck casters under the legs. I have the panel mounted under the mash tun and a Netgear web adapter on the unit. I can control the whole thing from my iPhone. This pic is from my first wet test.
