Solar panels!
Sunday, September 14th, 2014

Solar power is essential to me in a trailer. I went with 2 175 watt panels and four 6v deep cycle trojan 105 batteries. I added a distro box for the DC and the ac is ran independant with the ability to plug it into the xantrex 2000 watt inverter if needed.

the exposed black struts are what the mounts attach to for reference. my wood slats are to attach the insulation


mounts have hinges for future angle tweaking
