2011 Keystone raptor 3912LEV
Bought my raptor last June,... Over the winter I had it in a gated storage lot and even with the battery disconnect pulled there was a draw somewhere, so I installed a charge controller and wired in two 55 watt solar panels,.... Being afraid to drill holes in the rubber roof membrane I just wedged the panels between the front ac and an air vent and against the tv antenna and such,..... Anyways,... I managed to get the charge controller wired in, mounted, etc. I ran the wires down off the roof and into the compartment but now the weather is warm and I want to permanently install them.
I can easily fabricate a set of L brackets to attach to the aluminum frame on the panels,.... My question is this.....
Is there anyone on the forum familiar with how to SAFELY drill into the roof trusses and be able to PERMANENTLY seal these brackets so there's no chance of leakage?
I know I could easily get some stainless screws and a couple tubes of silicone window sealant,... But I'm looking for someone with experience in this area to tell me if there's something better,.... Maybe a mounting system made especially for RV roofs such as this?
(been reading the forums on the iPhone app for a long time, this is my first post! Also the first RV I've had that wasn't rented, lol Seems like there's some greatly helpful people on here! Looking forward to your replies!!)
