    Hi allThinking of having a solar panel fitted to the motorhome. Have made enquiries with a Nottingham company to supply and install. Company called Detroit Solar, has any one used them or heard about them. Would appreciate any comments before I commit. I would have a go myself to fit but unable to due to disability.

    Have a word Dave as mentioned..
    Whilst I have never heard a bad word said about the company you mention, I do seem to remember their prices were a little high for the products on offer..

    Dave Newell supplies and fits about the best solar panels and controllers around, has a 100% solid reputation for good workmanship, AND I believe, as you are a member, will 'look after you' in fiscal terms :thumb:

    And, if you want to stay over and visit the local museums, whilst the work is done, they can book you into a camp site, only yards away from his work shop.

    You might like to check out C.L.S...

    He is a Funster and supplied solar panels for me.

    He might come to you too.

    I have had good advice from STEEVIE on this site and he has fitted a domestic solar panel to his M/H and it functions perfectly... Worth a very good look into... Mitch.. :thumb:
