    Probably works fine but pretty much over priced.. That controller is a real cheapy ( I bought several identical ones for other uses over this last summer.. The dearest was £17 and the cheapest £9.00 including post ! )

    The silicone is not suitable so discount that and add a tube of Sikaflex for about a tenner.. gland £5.00, £6.00 of wire.. If your contemplating the job your self that means you are not daft when it comes to tools, so I am sure you can soon make up a few brackets ( I use a couple of bits of 50mm angled ally for one end and actually bolt the other end to the rail I have round my van .. but obviously how they are mounted is up to you :Wink:

    I would go for a pair of cheaper 80 w panels, a decent controller
