Autocruise Starspirit 05 Fitting Solar Panel

Hi all,
Iíve decided to fit my own solar panel and want to know if anyone has done this on a Starspirit 2005 model. I would like to know how they routed the wires/cables from the roof to the leisure battery. If you have pics, that would be even better.
Thanks in advance. Steve.

Pick a spot on the inside where you can hide the cables (top of a cupboard/wardrobe) and use that. You can easily run the cabling along the roof from the solar in a length of square conduit stuck to the roof.

If you drill a very small (3mm) hole up from your chosen spot you will be able to see if itís a suitable spot on the outside. If not a small dab of silicone will seal it up and you can find another spot.

Try and bring the cable in on the same side as your Leisure battery, that saves having to run the wiring across/under the floor.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, itís in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with
