    hi all, me and she who must be obeyed have swapped the caravan for a motorhome. we are learning slowly but, surely. got the new mh in september and it has just developed a gearbox problem, fortunately it is under warranty so no problem, just doing without it for a short while. while we are waiting for the repair being done i have bought a solar panel which i will fit myself. the panel is a monocrystalline, 100 watts. I have bought it from ebay and a company called lesunhk.com. the kit includes panel, 10 amp regulator and 5m cable. I will need to purchase a cable gland, brackets (i will make them) and sikaflex to seal. My question is, has anyone of you got one of these panels installed?. The whole kit cost £195 and it seems almost too cheap but i dived in anyway. Anyone got any views or info on this???.

    regs, Bobski :Smile:

    Hi bobski and :welcome: ...


    ... that company gets top marks from us - we have been using one of their panels, regulator etc. for over a year now - no problems at all.
