Re: Solar panel from harbor Freight
Yeah, I got one of those sets on sale with coupon, etc as well.
But you don't get much wattage per sq inch with those puppies. Fine if you've got tons of room, but on recommendation of folks here I got one of those Grape Solar 100w panels at Costco. I use mine externally (i.e. not mounted on the van, but on it's own stand) and it works far better than wrestling three panels of similar size for 45w. YMMV. You can currently (ha!) get one at Home Depot for $150; doesn't include the controller like with HF's but that's over twice the power in a smaller package.
