Dave, have an ice cold (sorry ya'll we like it cold) 6 pack of Revolver Blood and Honey Ale with your name on it. All you need is to go south.

I may be retired, but I don't have time to pour my beer into a glass.

Back when I was looking years ago, I thought Grape seemed like the best. It had very good reviews elsewhere also.

Thanks, I must give this some thought. $89bucks.Home Depot for 100 watts of extra solar is very tempting. I don't want to bolt or glue it to my roof so portable storage is the big issue.

To increase my solar to 200 watts I prefer a portable panel over one bolted, glued or taped to the roof. So big issue is where to store it. That 1.37 x 26.37 x 40.16" panel Home Depot is selling won't fit in the closet, and I sure don't want to be looking at it hanging on the dinette street bathroom side wall. I could keep it in the truck bed. Storage under the bed is better. My problem is, to add a shelf there like you did, Kevin, well... no way I crawl under there, and, no way I will wrestle with that mattress to drill bolting holes to hold the self in place. What to do?

I got on line today with Home Depot and ordered one each 100 watt solar panel, $95.68 with the sales tax. What's my storage solution? The fat lady ain't sung yet. Stay tuned.
