Solar panel

Just noticed that Escape has upgraded their optional rooftop solar panels to 160 watts from 95 watts -- for the same price. Wow ... Saving money like crazy!

Thanks for the heads up, stewlang. That's great news!

I had been wondering if there would be room for a second panel on the roof of our forthcoming 21'. With that extra 65 watts, we won't need it.

I wonder if the new 160 watt panel can replace an existing 95 watt unit without additional support brackets?
