Notes from the Installation Team

I made myself one of these 20 watt portable solar systems and it works really well for maintaining or trickle charging 12 volt batteries that don't have much of a draw on them. My 20 watt portable mainly lives it life connected to my riding lawn mower over the winter months. Then during the summer I move it to my snow plow truck that remains parked until winter.

The CDT 20 watt solar panel has a low profile frame and is very durable. The only way you could break it is by dropping onto a hard surface from an elevated position.

If roof mounting you'll need some inexpensive solar panel mounts such as our bag of four Flat Z Mounts. The Flat Z Mounts will raise the module about 3/4" allowing air to flow under the solar panel for cooling.

The mounting holes on the frame are spaced 1 7/8" from each end. The center mounting hole is at 9 7/16".

What you need to Acquire
1 - Tube of clear or white silicone to glue the charge controller to the back of the solar panel.
Electrical tape.
