Solar Panel mount on DS Roof/Awning Facia

I mounted 3x400w panels = 1200w using 1x1 square aluminum tube. The roof brackets work great with no roof penetration. If you wire in series (high voltage/low amps) you might get away with the built in solar prep 10g wire (check a wire/amp chart). The sheet aluminum pieces are branch guards. Pic of Victron controller was in June with batteries taking a big drink. Left room for one more panel but really happy with this system, I dont run ACs with it.
