I was looking at the renogy solar panels online. they have two different types is one type better that the other, are they meant for different applications?

They offer only 1 foldable monocrystalline 100W panel type. With a built in solar charge controller (if your setup doesn't have one already) or without the controller (if you have one already installed in your trailer).

I would not use VHB tape except maybe for flat flexible type panels, but using flat flexible panels would not be my first choice either. Thats just me.

There are different types of VHB tape and different sizes and thicknesses. It is important to match the tape to the project.

So... if you do want to try VHB tape then I suggest you do a lot of reading up on it first. I would start here and be sure to read the technical reports.

And then I would read this thread... all 525 posts.

The wires passes into the fan of the bathroom, no holes in the roof to insert the wire ...

I live near Montreal and I traveled to Maryland, then in Gaspesie then the Mingan Islands and the sign still stands.
I check occasionally and it remains securely attached.

I followed the instructions from these videos:
