Thanks, Don.

The picture is a great help! Is are your batteries on the rear bumper, front dinette or hitch box?

Regards,

Matt

The installation of the front and rear panels, and connections to the existing Go Power controller, were completed by AM Solar in Springfield, OR. The panels were mounted using their rocker foot mount brackets and the panels are not bolted through the roof. I did ask them to add a 2nd set of brackets to the leading edge of the front panel.

Hi Matt,
The batteries are in the hitch box.

As far as I can tell, only the 17' has the battery (or batteries) on the rear bumper, and it always has it (or them) there.

Pat,
You really can't see the extra set of feet in the photo as they were reversed (back-to-back) so the extra bracket base is under the panel.
Yep, they're busy. When I was there in early September they were already booked for the rest of the year.

Don,
I'm with Patandlinda, That looks like a really nice solar install. Was the junction box installed by ETI or by AM Solar. ETI now runs the wires through the refrigerator vent.
