Roger: If you are looking for a replacement panel for the original, why? As I understand it, the original uhaul solar panels were only intended to keep the battery charge up when they were parked on the dealers lot, not as a battery charger for when it is in use. Bob

The one on mine was gone when I bought it.

It may be gone for a reason I suppose. If you look on page 14 in the Uhaul repair manual that is available on this site it tells how the solar panel works. Also says how the converter will charge the battery, but that's if you have shore power available. I ran a wire off each battery terminal out to where I can connect a battery charger with a meter on it to recharge the battery without having to get right at it as we leave the bed set up all the time and in the CT-13 it is in the rear and covers the access to the battery. Having the solar panel is nice for the originality of the trailer, but if ours was gone I wouldn't bother to replace it. Good idea to post your looking, never know what might turn up. I also heard they are hard to remove.
