    I love the setup and I am going to copy a few things. Wondered where you show how you attached the solar panel to the MM. I am really close to this whole system myself, except for the remote. I like that.

    I didn't see this til just today... I added 2 aluminum square tubes to the panel and used U-bolts to attach to the pipe on the MM. You can see how I did this in the following video.

    I am going to do an updated video on the solar now that I've used it for about 15 nights on the road. I am upgrading my battery capacity and having to replace the controller that I fried.
