    In this video, I replace my damaged remote ground solar panel. Last year I modded up a remote panel using a flexible Lensun 100 watt solar panel. See blog posts and videos:

    Update On My Boondocking Remote Solar Panel Mod

    Unfortunately, the plywood mounting board was sent flying by a gust of wind last winter and damage the film surface dramatically reducing its output wattage.

    I decided to swap it out with a new 100 watt Renogy rigid solar panel like the 4 I have on the roof. I needed to modify the mounting arrangement on the toolbox in the bed of the truck, and I show that in the video.

    Thanks Ray, I was wondering just wondered just how well the flexible panel would last. I liked your idea on mounting it but without other protection over the top of it I felt it would be more susceptible to rocks, hail and other objects that would break it.  Another great video.  B-)
