    Renogy panel is attached to roof with VHB on aluminum L channel.

    Wire moulding is standard Lowe's stock.

    Inlet is trolling motor charge set with plenty of Dycor.

    MPPT controller.

    300W Suresine powers a dedicated GFI outlet for laptops and small TV. It will put 500 watts continuous without a problem. I like it because unlike the big inverter it has no fan. It draws almost zero amps in standby. No noise.

    Carlsbad, what factors made you choose the components you installed?

    I did some research first, then chose the best products I could source from Amazon. I did buy some misc. parts local as needed.

    Your roof looks almost identical to mine!
    I've got a 150w Renogy panel, MPPT controller, and a Trojan battery made for a floor scrubber. So far I've been happy with the results, I think you will be too.
