You might consider keeping the panel (or smaller panels) moveable and leave it up against the wheel house window best facing the sun when not under way. Keeps things clear. Stored in a stern locker when under way. I do this but mine is only 30cm square and used to keep the battery charged.

Hi Rob, did you source and fit solar panels to your Pilot? I am researching from scratch for mine.

Hi, I am looking to fit a Solar Panel to my Hardy FP, via a charge controller. I already have a 100W on a motorhome and it works well, but I fear this size is a bit large for the Hardy's roof. I am converting the lighting to LED's and apart from that don't use a huge amount of electricity. Maybe a cool box when motoring. Can anybody advise on what size panels they have fitted to an FP? Thank you.
