What exactly are the solar panels for that are mounted on the a/c shrouds ?? Is it actually used for the a/c or is it just a conveinent place to mount them ?
You would have to have most of your roof covered with solar cells to run your AC. Mounted on the shrouds they don't put many additional holes in your roof and they lessen your chance of finding dead batteries when your rig is in storage. They can extend your time between running the generator to recharge when dry camping also.
On my 2001 I have never had a dead battery even when my rig is left out of service for over a month with no shore line available.
