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.

I have mine mounted next to my boil kettle since rearranging kettles about a year ago...
I was worried about this too but no issues or condensation that I can see so far. my cooling fan pulls air in from the far end and blows it out the top of my panel .

Originally, I used an articulating TV mount, but it was too flimsy. I ended up basically rebuilding the same thing out of much sturdier materials. I re-used the piece that mounts to the panel. Here's the part that I rebuilt...

I just have thick probably 3/8" plywood behind my garage dry wall so I just used the hangers they gave with the panel and lag screwed it into the wall.

Posted this in the "Show Your Panel" thread but thought that I would post it here also. Just powered the panel up for the first time yesterday and since it did not burst into flame I figured I could post a few pictures. No temp sensors attached so the pid's and indicator lights are not working correctly.

I welded mine directly to the stand - but I dont recommend it - whenever you want to go bigger, you'll want to put a bigger panel in. I had to install a smaller panel for the boil control, but actually like it that way as the SSRV control is now right next to the BK.
