Hi, i am just wondering if anyone has mounted or thought about mounting a solar panel to the front of their UEV390? I am heading off in April for 4 months with the wife and 3 kids and have 2x80w solar panels from my old camper that i want to use.See the photo as an example. I will keep the top edge level with the top of the canvas and then angle the panel down. If i am set up in one spot for a few days then i will mount them so thst i can take them off so that i can place them in the best position for catching the suns rays.

So fired up the 20 year old panels, still pumping out the power after 20 years.

So i have made the frame for the panel which also acts as a wind deflector. Just need to finish the mounts.

All finished, takes 5 minutes to remove the panel and can be secured with a padlock. The frame is all all aluminimun so adds minimal weight.
