Travel Side Mounted Solar Panel




I have been searching without success for a posting in one of the threads discussing mounting solar panels. One posting included pictures and a description of mounting panels over the travel side window. When being used as a solar panel, it also acted as an awning for the window. The panel folded down and locked in place for travel. I believe there was also a design for the rear window. I plan to add a second panel and like the dual purpose possibilities of the side window mount.

Anyone out there remember where or who made that posting? Of course I could just muddle through the setup as I did a number of years ago with the first panel but any leads would be appreciated.

Bruce

Edit for spelling error in heading. "dis" should be "did" "Sorry about that", said Max
