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?

Hi,

There was a firm doing awnings that were solar panels back in 2008. They produced some for Road Trek. No mention of this in their current production.

Some one has pointed out that I'm at 2.5 meters (8'4") wide. So doing solar "wings" might put me to "over size".

I could still add a lift panel at the rear of the RV.
