I installed two panels via a controller and connected that to the battery feeds. The leads from each of the panels is inline fused, just for safety. It has worked well.
We also have a small briefcase style panel which I stand on the dashboard to catch early morning sun, also feeding via the same controller and it works well too. I rarely connect to the mains and have been very pleased by the installation.
Probably the most useful thing I have added to the MH.
Our panels are mounted on aluminium supports, these are stuck yo the well cleaned roof using Sikaflex. The frames are mounted onto the panels using self tapping screws that will just go through the metal, held in by anti shake washers.
Mounting the panels and controller took me about half a day, the cables enter via a gland fitted entry point.
I have somewhere, got a download of how to do it which I could probably find if it would help....
Any typo that I make means the errorists win.
Any comments above are only MY OPINION
and should be read as that.
