if you made some collector reflectors you could optimize the sunlight and not have to reposition the unit as often or at all... but as it stands, that is a marvelous system.

Thanks, Mike for showing us what you have created. I love it. Have you figured out yet how you could duct the warm air into your coach? Why are you putting it on the roof? Could it not work as well my being on the ground, (kinda like you have it now) You have done a great job and I am impressed.
Now you have me thinking of doing something like this to heat my garage on the cold winter days. Or other uses as well... Hmmm....

Hey Pogo,

I haven't figured out where or how I'm going to duct it yet, however, I'm currently rebuilding the box with Aluminum scrap so I can throw it up top of the motorhome. I might duct it through the 14" cap or through the sunlight up there. Stay tuned, I'm just lazy lately, need to finish rebuilding it
