How about portable solar rather than permanent? [emoticon]

Less panels/more watts...Chase the sun for rewards..LOL

Two 100 watt portable panels with one running a compressor refer in refer mode and the other running a compressor refer/freezer(Engel uses less watts than Iceco) in freezer mode..Accessible through top hatch above bed..

Doesn't one panel shade the other quite a bit of the time each sunny day? [emoticon]

I have a 100w solar panel and charger.

I've never had a need for it so I've never used it.

I might consider using it when I install my tank heaters.
