Travis has requested info from Engineering but of course I gotta go since I have all the parts :} I wish there was another way to get the power cable in other than thru the fridge roof cap. Thanks
Since Travis said there were no trusses on this model I drilled 3/8 holes and used 8 toggle bolts per panel. Under the 2'' wide angle i used a silicone formulated to stick to aluminum, fibreglass, fingers, hair, blankets etc. I put enough silicone to seal the holes and hold the panels forever. I put the controller by the entry door to minimize wire length and aggravation. Right now my batteries are fully charged and ready to go. I realize it would be difficult for FR to to offer mounting strips or locations given the variance in panel sizes, but still.... Anyway a little guidance would be appreciated from FR.
