Hi,

I'm wanting to put solar panels on the sides of my RV. I want to be able to tilt them up. I hope to motorize the tilting mechanism so that with an east to west RV orientation I could raise the panels on the north side enough to have a good sun angle.

The system would not be used while the RV was in motion.

Design ideas?

Don

How wide is your RV, Don? If it's a 2.6M (8'6") wide body, the panels and mechanism could put you in the over width category. That said, Venture Mfg makes a wide variety of linear actuators, including many that are used in both the RV and solar industries.
