Solar Panels with Exposed Cords + a 'what is this?"
I climbed a ladder to check the top of my Airstream for the first time last week and have three questions (photos attached):
1) The two plug-in cords that run from the box to the solar panels look like what is shown in my Owner's Manual. However, do I need to be concerned that the cords are, well, just lying there?
2) Should I unplug the two cords from the receptacle and use the plug protectors attached to the plugs (can be seen in photos) to keep rain/snow out over the winter?
3) What are two foot-long, elongated shields on side of air conditioner?
Thanks so much - I continue to learn so much from this very helpful community.
