A long while back I posted photos of the folding tripod stand we used with the A-Frame for portable solar panel. I couldn't let go of the solar pole idea. I asked DH if I could attach to the tongue and he suggested fence brackets ... so here is what we've done to eliminate the tripod and go with the pole.
We used corral panel brackets to attach the pole to the tongue jack. Spouse attached a repurposed satelite dish bracket that allows it to slide onto the pole. Once it's on, it can rotate and tilt on the pole to catch the sun rays and never have to leave the trailer's tongue once it's attached.
Cattledog, you asked me to post when I did this project, so here it is.
Spouse purchased the large handled nuts to use for the bolt. He spray painted the pole black to match the tongue...last time I attempted spray paint, my fingers wore it more than the project. Haha I also lined the inside of the brackets with felt to reduce risk of scratching the jack post.
