(Renogy) MC4 male/female cable connectors - MC4 Crimping tool - MC4 assembly/disassembly tool https://www.amazon.c...e?ie=UTF8&psc=1
MC4 T Y Branch connectors
SAE pigtail - supplied in packet from FWC upon purchase of Camper
Solar Cynergy 120W Flex Solar panels (2) - 46.6” x 21.3” - (purchased from Solar Blvd, now, out of business?)
Aluminum .125 hollow square tubing - something like below - for the E to W Yakima structural attachment
This .065 square tubing could be used for the N to S panel supports. Rectangular could be used for interior panel support.
Note, I did use all .125 wall thickness for my build
1/4 x 20 stainless hex bolt - locking & flat washers, nylock nut, bolt lengths determined by need
Aluminum bar strap - cut to determined need
Obviously the welding, that was generously offered to me along the way, is not a diy skill. My stacked, bolted tube frame was going to be extremely functional. It weighed the same. It was the same height (air space) off the roof. It was unpainted. My friend turned my clunky duckling into a white swan. He insisted I paint it, good idea, white Rust-Oleum. This frame will last as long as this Camper. It’s really light & I will be able to easily replace (or add one) panels if needed.
