    I've noticed in a lot of pictures that you guys mount your control pad/lever on the right side of the steering wheel. Is this more comfortable? I'm from Maine and I've never in New England seen a right side mounted pad. Maybe easier to use?

    I have one truck with the toggle and the other has the hand held. Both are on the left. But then I'm from Maine.
