First I would like to thank all the people on the forums who shared their solar power
advice and experience. Based on those posts I decided to add a 50 Watt roof mounted solar
unit to the ElPea. Based on our limited power use (water pump, some lights
at night, no furnace), I decided that the roof mount and forget system would work for us. I opted on one piece of advice and routed the power cable through the black water vent pipe. This is a great way to bring a cable into the egg without boring a large hole in the roof. I used a line of VHB tape to stick the cable to the roof; I then caulked around it and painted it white. I also painted the inside run in the bathroom. I put the control panel behind an overhead cabinet door to eliminate one more blinking light
inside the egg. All and all a good mod. Thanks everyone.
