I'm the same way. Especially with a new trailer still under warranty. But, seems to be the way everybody does it. Plus, they are up and out of the way and out of sight.

I have a flagpole mount I made up for my trailer and bolted it to the tongue, just behind the propane tanks. I was thinking of a similar setup for the solar panels. I'd use just a standard solar panel pole mount. Without too much fuss, you could pretty much lay the panels flat for towing. And, I figured, once you've parked and the landing gear is down, loosen a few bolts, and slide the mount and panels up into the correct lattitudinal orientation. You can easily go and rotate the panel mount by hand throughout the day. Morning coffee, rotate it to face Southeast, and at lunch, to the Southwest.

We'll see. I had a bonus check I was kind of setting aside. I splurged on 2 group 27 12v batteries and a few 'fixins' for the house, looks like the rest is going towards an extra mortgage payment. It sure sucks to be responsible

lkeul, is it keeping your batteries charged up? What kind of camping do you do? Are you running the generator much, or plugged into shore power?

I mostly do shore power hook up camping, this was already installed in the Flagstaff I just picked up a couple of weeks ago, so far the batteries are staying charged, but have not really "tested" the system to see what it is capable of, will be doing that this week.
