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

They make Flexible Solar Panels these days, I wonder if any of them could be rolled up as your awning...
