RE: Roof mounting solar panel

I used seam sealing tape (don't have the name until I get home) it's about 4" wide. I cut pieces for each foot and put that on the roof first. Then I laid the panels (four 100w panels) on each pad and put two screws in each of the legs. It's supprising what wind can do. Then of course I put dicor over all that. I drilled a hole through the roof into the center of a wall (I must have measured a dozen times) and hit it perfectly, and put went to the floor next (also measured a dozen times) putting the controller in with the inverter. The remote I ran back to the wall where all the other remotes are. Took from 8 in the morning to about 4 in the afternoon.

RE: combiner box for solar

Well, I'm back, different RV now a Super C and doing the solar install all once again. This time I'm going with 400w - and I believe the PWM controller over the MPPT. Once again, I need a better set up than I had last time. Last time I had two 100w panels for 200 w with a MPPT controller.

Enjoy your new home away from home. We also were there and found a Super C we just bought from Giant RV.

RE: combiner box for solar

Bend, while I fully agree with you, I was hoping to do parallel for the benefit of one might get some shade, I still have the other to pick up the difference, in series, if one gets shaded, the other will drop accordingly. I'll have to look into this more, as you do have a point well taken.

combiner box for solar

So is anyone using a combiner box for two 100w solar panels. What I see I really don't need it even with hooking them up parallel. I going into a MPPT20 charge controller. Using the system for battery charging only - no inverter. I do plan on putting one 20A fuse just before the controller
