Adding Solar in Houston

Ok, lets be honest here. I fancy myself as a master carpenter, plumber, engineering, etc etc etc. Truth be told, I'm not sure I could complete a full Lincoln Log set without some help.

So here's the story. I am picking up my new 1990 Bigfoot camper mid to end of September. I'd like to add 100 watts of solar to the roof. Is there anyone in Houston that would like to help me? By help I mean I'll hand you the tools, look over your shoulder and fetch you a cold beverage upon request.

Cheers - Chris

ROFL - Love your honesty! perhaps when they finish your solar you could talk them into coming up to Vancouver and helping me with a little project I have ... pull my rear bench and water tank out and then put them back after some electrical additions/upgrades. Weathers real good right now.

Seriously I do hope you find someone. I waited to do my project until after I attended a rally this past week-end and was able to get a lot of great tips/ideas on how to do what I need to do on my own without messing it up to badly.

Don't tell anyone, but once I have someone on the hook - i'll convince them (i.e. beg and plead) to do some other things too
