RV COVER

Does anyone on this forum know if an Adco cover will allow enough light through on the solar panels to charge my batteries? I contacted Adco and they said that they had heard from some that said yes and others that said no.

Unlikely. It would be like putting your panels in a tent. All the covers advertise that they block UV, paint damaging sunlight.

I have an Adco Tyvek cover and it does not allow enough light through to my panels. I put my batteries on trickle charge every three weeks or so.
