Here's a Pic. Hard to tell but the cover on the drivers side pretty much covers most of it. I put some extra electrical tape around the rest of the box that was more exposed but I wouldn't worry about it anyhow. It's covered good enough. In other words, exactly where you mentioned, although about an inch of the box is a little exposed.

Wow! You took the fascia out just to show me a pic! Stellar! Much appreciated!

No no, lol... This was taken when I installed it.

It has electrical tape on the end that's exposed now for added waterproofing measure lol. Thats a piece of black duct ta[e to help hold it up - I wasn't sure the included 3m double-stick would do the job.

Garage
Has anyone tried towing with SF 2.0t

I haven't put a hitch, on my Sf yet, but I was wondering how well the truck pulled a trailer, or towed.

2014 Loaded Hyundai Santa Fe T2.0. Black Awd. Loving my second Hyundai!

I just finished towing a small/light camping trailer from Montreal to Vancouver. It was a delight. Speed limit all the way, except when roads were real bad with frost heaves. Did some manual shifting in the mountains but other than that it was D all the way.

Did you go with the dealer installed OEM hitch or an aftermarket one?

I went with dealer installed as part of the purchase.
I did not want ANY excuse possible, should something go wrong.

I did convert from 4-pin to 7-pin connector though.
It was relatively easy to feed from battery. I used a 4-->7 pin kit from eTrailer. It used the existing Hyundai 4-pin and I added power to it.

The kit left me with a combo 4 and 7 pin connector.

I have to add a relay for the power going to the trailer for battery charging so that it is only connected when SF is actually running. For now I disconnect the 7-pin when parked more than overnight.

I'm a bit behind on my website but here is the link re 7-pin:

Trailer hitch from factory...Receiver included!

My Santa Fe came with a factory hitch installed.... I just now found the box in one of the storage areas that contains the receiver...I didnt' even know that was included.... so if you have a factory hitch...check for a box in your rear storage area!!

How many miles did you have on your SF before you started towing? We just bought ours, has about 600 miles on it and wanted to tow our boat (about 2000lbs) on a 400 mile fishing trip in the next couple weeks. The owners manual says 1200 but the dealer says about 600. I don't know which one is correct. Any idea?
