Adding a New Panel to the Factory Solar
I have a Safari 25' FB with the factory solar option. I was up on the roof last weekened and took some measurements to see if I could add another solar panel. It looks like I can fit a Kyocera KC85T between the AC and the front fantastic fan.
From what I have read on the forums and elsewhere, it seems like the wiring would be fairly easy: hook the new panel up in parallel with the existing panels. I know there is concern about hooking up different kinds of panels in series, but parallel should be ok.
However, I'm not sure how to mount the panel. It appears that people have used rivets, tape(?) and sheet metal screws. Does anyone know the relative benefits of each? This is our first AS, which makes me a little nervous about attaching things to it and I'd like to make sure I do it right.
If anyone has tried this, I'd really like to hear about your experiences.
