Wholly Mackeral Solar

This will be my 3rd in a series of posts about a tree that landed on my Buddy's RV. We finally were able to get some branches cleared so we could get to the battery and check on it.

It's up at 100% partly in thanks to the solar panels working all Winter. But to my amazement, the panels were still providing some juice to the battery.

Now please don't anybody say that it'll just buff out....LOL.

Duct tape will only make things worse for that temporary fix. .

Relax, alright?
My Old Man is a television repair man.
He's got this ultimate set of tools.
I can fix it.

Duct tape on a solar panel? I didn't even consider it.

Are you replying to a different thread? If so, what's the best option to duct tape?

“If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.” Duct tape is your friend.
