There are a lot of factors in installing your solar kit on your roof. Here are a few details about purchasing, installing, and protecting your solar kit and RV, travel trailer, camper and cabin’s roof. When installing your solar panel on your RV’s roof, you should pick up a high-quality silicone to seal up any holes you drill for your RV’s solar panel. We need to be very specific about this. The worst thing for your RV is water damage, and that’s the main factor when installing a solar panel on your RV, Travel Trailer, Fifth Wheel Camper, or Cabin. We will get you high-quality parts for your roof to sustain driving down the road and years of wear and tear. Silicone sealant is not included in RV Solar Kits, because people like to buy their own based on color, brand name, and type. Silicone Sealant needs to be rated for direct sunlight. Don’t buy silicone based on price but on reputation and quality. Remember your RV roof loves you! Many customers use a brand of lap sealant called Dicor.
While you are on your RV roof, take the time to check out all the seals around thru roof penetrations. Repair any racks or holes that have formed. Proper maintenance on your RV roof will help keep your RV in great shape.
We want to make sure that the best possible products are used on your RV and travel trailer. So call us at 1-866-574-4983 with any questions and we’ll be glad to help with pre sales support and installation walkthrough.
