My concern would be a snow load on the roof with permanent install. I like the Idea of the panels tho. I always pack my boat or dirt bike and generator, weight is not a concern for me. We normally stay where no one else is so we can make all the noise we want or
To sites with hookup. I have a 3000w inverter Gen it does well. I had my Ac running full out and used the microwave and hot water turned on. I have been looking into solar panels but only to charge my 2 12v deep batteries at this point.

I'm not concerned about snow....the same weight will be on the roof as before...and snow tends to clear off the panels before the rest of the roof. At least on the panels I've seen mounted on houses here in the northeast of the US...not sure how much more snow you get in Vancouver. You could always get several of the less efficient flexible panels - those would carry the same load as the roof - and no holes!

My goal is to be able to hit a bunch of the state/national parks which do not have hookups...but that also means being friendly to my neighbors

Has anyone tried using an accumulator to quiet the pump?

My pump is so quite now I can Stand next to it and barely hear it run. Mounting the pump to the red rubber then the red rubber to the floor totally solved my issue.

I'll put that on my project list, I want to look at the pump mounting anyway. On our first dry trip with the X213 the pump was audible but not obtrusive. On the second trip it made the kitchen faucet shake and was much louder. Purged the lines on every faucet, including the outside shower, but no improvement. I'll make sure it's mounted well, try your method, and maybe even grab an accumulator since they're so easy to attach and are not expensive.

Bosco...thanks for putting up the pictures of the front end headspace mod...now my wife is asking me to to this to ours. Was the paneling easy to pull off without causing damage to it?

I was able to pry open gently and slowly without any damage. Cut the one edge first, I lined the edge with duck tape so my saw blade wouldn't scratch anything. The liner inside is paper thin white plastic I put in. The gas struts I bought are rated for 60nm or lbs. They came from Online Shopping for Cool Gadgets, RC helicopter & Quadcopter, Mobile Phone, Fashion at Banggood.com ($10 for the pair).the area is 8'x23"x30" tons of room for kids toys.
