I calculate that I need a 19 degree angle. Since the solar panel is mounted directly to the roof, about how many 2x6 boards should I put under one tire?

Under the SPARE TIRE?

Otherwise - just as many as it takes to ensure that your fridge never works again! (Or that you fall outta bed about 12 times per night!)

Ahhh,,, One more thing to NOT worry about. My solar panel is set to about 50. It charges the battery in direct sun no matter the time of the year or locatin with about 4 amps charging current. Enough to recharge the battery to full condition about every 3 day.
