Our Samlex control is for our inverter; our solar controller is a GoPower with a LCD display and yellow A & B buttons.

I see your front exterior light is mounted where I thought ours would be but instead it is just above the belly band. May need to specify location.

The graphics will just peel off on a warm day with a strong thumbnail to get it started, its just a little easier with the hair dryer- at least on the corner. We've left only the Maple Leaf and tire cover.

While I would not be able to help you with the problem, I was confused, too, about the Samlex being part of the solar.

A picture of the display would really help those who can help you, I think.

On our panel, blinking green means that it is trying to charge. If there are no amps or watts, then it is either too dark to charge or already fully charged. When the battery is discharged and you are in the sun, then the blinking green will be one, two, or more blinks depending on how close to fully charged you are.

Well, we have certainly been charged up from all of the driving so maybe that explains it.

We are moving to no services for three days so we should be able to see then if that is the situation for sure. Thank you so much! Thought we were not hooked up to the panel.

Ross, there is no more GoPower. It is now Samlex for both.

We like so many things about the 21'. The space is much greater for storage and in the aisle and it just generally looks like a much bigger trailer, even though it is only another 20 inches in length and four in width. The difference is very noticeable.

The refrigerator is much nicer and works well so far. We have not stayed in hot weather in one spot to know yet about the temp situation.

The improvements with ceiling lights and mud flaps and rounded corners are very welcome.

All in all, it is such a step up for us since we also did a number of customizations. They really did a wonderful job!

We are at Banff and saw magnificent Lake Louise today. What a stunning sight. Will post photos later.

The Banff campground is just parking on the street. The views all around are incredible, however.
