I haven't secured them with anything... yet!

I never had a problem with the 45 watts I used with the pop up but I didn't have as much invested in it either.

I plan to do like PSU and use a cable like this one...
and a lock to go with it. The 30' one is only a buck more than the 15' locally. It should work swell since I use my 30 foot, 30 amp power cord with some adapters I made for connecting the panels back to the trailer. Nice 10 guage cable and I don't have to pack an extra just for the panels.

I just need to get to the store next time I am in town.

I attached a 100 watt flexible panel to my roof with silicone, and it works great. I couldn't remove it from my last rig, so I had to sell it with the panel. I'm willing to bet that it would work with any panel. Just put a good bead all the way around, and let it set for a couple of days before driving. I'm not fancy, so I ran flexible electric conduit down the front of my trailer to the battery box. I can upgrade cables if I need to. Once I changed out my lights to LEDs off eBay, and got a monitor, I realize we only run the battery down about 10% to 20% each evening if we aren't using the fans a lot. I take a 20 watt portable panel so I can place it in the sun if needed, but in the Southwest, we always get enough sun to charge the batteries.
