Solar panel install on enclosed trailer

I got tired of looking for shore power to keep my deep cycle charged, and 120vac is hit and miss at most fields, so I installed a pair of 100w solar panels on the roof. The 30a controller keeps the battery topped off and desulfates as well.

At noon sun, the panel makes close to 200 watts and over 11 amps.

Nice Trailer

Hey Matt,

I like your trailer! I'm think about getting one for my planes. I'm think of a floor plane though. Do you have any sketch ups of your floor plan for your trailer? Thanks.
