new ETI solar panel

Jim,
Do you know whether or not the new solar panels are inter-changeable with the older, 95 Watt units (specifically in terms of mounting bracket locations)?

Hi: Zardoz... I believe the new panels are the same size only more efficient. Alf

This post contains important information from the factory about the operation of our refrigerators. Please let's keep it on that topic.
Could a moderator please start a new topic concerning the solar panels.

Thanks

Dave

The 95's are 20.8" x 40.8"

Jim,

I think there is room for a second panel on top of the 21

I measured the panels on my 19' and they are 20 3/4" wide. There is only 24 3/4" between the MaxiFan and the air conditioner cover so the bigger panel wouldn't fit a 19' like mine.
