I bought a couple of 100w solar panels and am planning to at least install the mounts for them on the roof before I put it up on the camper. I could use the z-brackets at the front of the roof, but was thinking I'd use 1" angle aluminum at the back end of the panels so I could bridge their weight across all of the roof beams (about 40" back from the front). I need to think about this... probably the most confusing thing for me is which adhesives to use for which stuff.
* I could simply put butyl tape under the spots where the aluminum angle crosses beams and have screws through, or I could lay a bead of self leveling sealant under the whole thing and over the screws, or ... ?
* And if I use z-brackets at the front and aluminum angle at the back, do I have to worry about them catching air and lifting the roof? Maybe aluminum angle at front and back would be best. Hmmm. Or maybe I can just use the z brackets at front and back and just put one screw into each bracket toward the back where they cross the beams in the roof.
