Been working on the solar setup for the EB van. With not much prime real estate on the roof of the CCV top (AC and Fantastic Fan) It had me thinking of ways I could mount my already purchased Kyocera 150w Solar Panels.
Initially I was going to mount both side by side, then once everything came together I realized I had way less space to work with. SOOOO!!!
I rigged up a sliding system to mount two panels one on top of another then mounting them using L-Track to the top. Each panel is around 50" long and 26" wide. So now the panels only take up the sq ft of one panel!!! When Stopped you just pull out the top panel and BOOM! 150w(space) to 300w SOLAR! With the hinges it allows the panels to tilt either way to allow them to be at the correct angle with the sun. I am still working on this and probably will involve some sort of gas shock for lifting.
