I’ve found that the best and easiest way to permanently install flexible solar panels on the roof of an RV, trailer or van without drilling holes is to use Eternabond …
Check guide from Avasva eco blog.
As a European – I thought the tape-thinkg was a Russian way of keeping machinery together.
I am about to install Solar panels on my RV. Ventilation is a huge deal to prevent hotspots. My question to you is, did you notice any performance issue mounting the panels flat with no ventilation space under the panels for cooling on a hot day.
Great video. I love your straight way of talking
Thank you for good practical advice, where did you get the solar panels from? Thanks. P.S. Subscribed.
Then where do the wires go w/ no drill hole?
I took great plans from Avasva . It help me a lot with my own solars.
Thank you for the video on installing solar panels, I was wondering do you have a video on where the wires go?
Great job. I like the way you say Ruff rather than Roof.
I know more about diy from Avasva handbooks!
Brian what do you think of the idea of adding plastic card board under the flex panels to aid in cooling? I hear heat from gluing can impact panel life, and of course output.
You will not get very many air bubbles from the eterna bond using just your hands. Use the roller and better yet, the back of a spoon. This from an art restorer who knows tapes.
Thank you for the helpful video. Could you leave a link for the velcro tape as well if it's no trouble?
Thanks and take care:)
great location looks which camera did you use to film this many thanks colin filming looks great quality
Direct contact the way you show increases solar heat gain by about 150% which also DECREASES electricity. If you want no drilling do it this way: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtqXaJn0Kns
ETERNABOND TAPE!!! Great idea.I'm a walking advert for that stuff. I got tired of re-sealing the seams on my horse trailer every year and discovered it. The tape held up for 10 years, then I sold the unit. It appears that those pannels are thin enough that if one died you could just mount another on top.
The cables on your panel come mounted on the top of the panel (sun side). Mine are on bottom (despite the photo in the description) https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B071L9NSMB/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I wanted to do what you are doing. Otherwise why buy the flexible panels? I think I'm screwed though. Which brand did you get? Should I return mine, or do you have any advice?
So 2 things…….1 where are you at? It looks amazing! 2nd, how do I run the cords into my campervan without drilling holes? I've thought about bringing the cords in through a window but then rain and people seeing the cords and getting nosey…..
Interesting and love the cable management 🙂❤️
