    I decided not to even use a rocker switch and just mounted the female plug for the 10 ft. winch cord in the dash on the flat area just below the ignition switch. Worked out well and looks pretty good there. This way I can plug it in and walk around the outside to my winch and operate it my self, at the winch, if I want to. I can always go back and add a rocker switch if I decide to. The RAM Ball Mount above the ignition switch is for my handheld GPS.

    Looked at several places to mount the winch solenoid and wanted a spot where I could easily get to it and it would always be up high enough to stay out of the water. Ended up mounting it to the front side of the battery tray area. Very easy to get to, to wire everything up and is close to the battery and winch and should stay dry up that high and just by removing the battery tray's cover everything is accessible. If you choose to mount your solenoid in the same place be sure to check where the bolt head will be on the opposite side of the solenoid, is a relatively small area where you can get to the bolt head due to the 2 wiring connectors with lots of small wires. That's the reason it is mounted on an angle.
