Badkat - I think there is no need to worry about new leaks if you avoid creating new holes in your roof.

You can use very strong 3M industrial 2-sided bonding tape to attach mounts for traditional panels to your roof, or you can use flexible panels that bond directly to your roof - see below. You're looking at a 288 watt system on my 1999 Safari. Here is a link to learn more about the 3M tape - http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...apes/VHB-Tape/

You should be able to rout the cabling through your refrigerator vent - again see below.

So unless you have something unusual going on, there should be no need to penetrate your roof at all. I sure didn't.

What is the shield purpose between the ac and the fridge vent? Or is that the fridge vent? That might be the waste vent?

Your are correct that is the fridge vent. The shield is not something I added. I assume it was installed by the factory to keep hot air from the AC exhaust from blowing into the fridge vent.

Does that shield go across the back of the ac and a similar side panel on the other side or is just on this side?

From what I gather from your comment, the power from the gen-set doesn't 'blend' with the inverter power to make up a surplus of AC. I guess I saw the two Honda eu2000s as being hooked together, so why not hook a Honda to an inverter? Your explanation helps me better understand it's not all that easy.

Maybe it's time for Plan B.
Yep, suggest plan B ... of course with enough $$$, anything is possible ...
