    I've settled on a DC-AC-DC electrical system design I am happy with. Some of it blatantly stolen from @gregoryx and others (thanks!) I would appreciate comments, questions, and criticism. I have a 2020 with dual alternators/batteries, so lots of spare amps available. The roof rack will be used...

    Hi - I've got a LWB High Roof & am plotting out my roof layout. Tough to find exact measurements but from what I can tell, the roof is about 121" x 54". I've ordered two Maxxairs and Hein's standard and forward roof adapter. I'm guessing the forward adapter will add a few inches to the real...

    I recently purchased @flatlinevanco Low Pro roof rack for my Transit 148WB Medium roof. I saw this photo on their site and was wondering if anyone could tell me what they think the panels are or dimensions. I'd like to do a similar layout with two 100W panels next to the fan as shown in this...
