I do not have any pictures right now.
I read numerous ways to mount solar panels... I decided to call the company and ask. They suggested (and I went with there suggestion) to use the screws they provided and screw directly into the roof. I also applied roof sealant under and around the brackets. The sealant obviously keeps the water out and will aid the screws holding the panel down. I had bought 3M vhb tape but decided against using it.
The controller is mounted in the compartment right next to the batteries where the factory mounting sticker directed and wires from the solar prep kit were.
I did buy the Go Power mounting box for the controller. Made it a cleaner install for the controller.
Go Power controller also can charge a second bank of batteries (didnít know this at first). I ended up wiring in the chassis batteries to the controller also.
Solar now keeps both battery banks charged with priority going to battery bank 1 (house batteries).
