I have considered using 3M VHB tape with those plastic no drill mounts and eternabond on top of the edges to hold it down.


That's a very bad idea. Doing that method you are only attaching the mounts to the roof membrane and not the roof structure.

Mounts need to be screwed to the roof.

True, I don't think my OCD would allow me to put anything up there without screws.

I spoke with Northwood a few months ago about this very thing and they said to put them anywhere but use self leveling sealant underneath every contact point and on top of those points.

Good to know. I will probably call them just to confirm when shopping for my solar panel mounts. Waiting on my batteries and inverter to show up so I can get the alternator charging working first.
