which mounts for solar panels?
I just sold our 21SS which I had mounted a 160W panel with aluminum brackets/lag bolts and lots of sealant.
Getting things in order for the arrival of the new unit and debating on mounts for the new 175W panel. I've seen these no-drill mounts and wondered about the tradeoffs. I would still drill into the aluminum frame of the panel, but instaed of penetrating the camper roof, would sealant/glue be enough to hold down the panel at highway speeds? If they ever come off, they would likely rip the rubber lining from the roof. Contemplating six mounts pictured below. Probably would mount 3 across the front as an airfoil to prevent much wind from getting under the panel at speed. Youtube reviews show these to be really beefy. I'm sure they would fade over time as any plastic would.
Any feedback? Is anyone currently using these on their roof?
