    March 24, 2020Ok so I am making plans for my solar install .I have researched all about panels, charge controllers and most everything else to build a system. BUT. I have a question for the people that already have a system on their roof. If you only have panels along ...  more

      Robbie & Alice March 24, 2020 Ours are installed equally on both sides so we can pick which direction to park and still tilt them.  In the winter we park facing east so we get the sunshine through the windshield for morning warmth.  We then will tilt the panels on the patio ...  more

        GlenM March 24, 2020 That's a great set up,but it's larger than most people have

      Seann (the Canadian) March 24, 2020 Since I always try to park with the roadside left side of the trailer facing south, I have all the panels mounted on that side

      Robbie & Alice March 24, 2020 I might also add that we park facing west in the hot months so the shady side is on the patio side....and rarely will tilt the panels in the summer months.

      Kip & Pat March 24, 2020 Mount an extra panel or two more than you've calculated you need. Then you can not worry about getting on roof to tilt them ever. We are careful to keep any shade at all off the panels. We also have a lithium battery that bulk charges up to 100 (no absorb...  more

        Kip & Pat March 24, 2020 Also we try to park with passenger side facing east. Gets sun in morning to help heat in the winter and shade in the afternoon for shade in the summer.

      Jeff & Wendy March 24, 2020 That would be the side you want pointed to the south. For us it’s the passenger side. But, you may want to take into account weight distribution and not overload one side of your rig.

        GlenM March 25, 2020 Good point about the weight distribution...all my batteries will be on the passenger side

      Kevin/Yvonne & 4 Doxies March 24, 2020 One thing I missed in my research was how to attach to roof. I am not to worried on what I did, but after I was done I saw where it was suggested to put down a layer of double-sided tape then screw the feet to the roof then put lap sealant over screws and...  more

      Bill B March 25, 2020 If you have a place that you frequently often, set it up for that. Side of the road, I don't park there and what direction are you going (50% east and 50% west, wrong 50% of the time). What is th site orientation? With mobile in the equation, something wi...  more

      Dreamers and Travelers/ Tom & Prescott March 25, 2020 We've keep two (18"x24"?) panels to set out on the ground & follow the sun for the times we'd rather park for the view and not be forced to always position rv for the sun.
