Questions & Answers
In my call with the manufacturer, I was told sikaflex was no longer in production It was mentioned in item 252 that this product should not be used to hold solar panels on RV roofs, is that correct?

How does this work in conjunction with a flex ?
That is not true at all. The flex panels need to be straight on the roof (clean and dry) and the adhesive tape 2-inch strips around the edges for extra security. Cover with 6 inches of marine sealant/adhesive in addition to the 3 inch wife.
How do I use these with a different brand of solar panel? There are no brackets for the 300W CSUN panel I have installed in my camper van. ?
You should be able to use it. The height of the panel might make the edge a little different (therefore, it depends on the image). If you can screw them from the side and not hit the cells, then you may do so.

Avoiding drilling holes is a great solution
I used the drill-free mounts to install a 100W Renogy solar panel on top of my motorhome with no issues. A sponge was used to scrub my motorhome roof, and then glue down the mounts with Sikaflex 221. They were attached to the panel with a single screw and the screws were left slightly loose before putting them down. By doing so, the mounts were able to align themselves with the Adding the second set of screws was the last step after the adhesive was cured. Besides making small changes to the bottoms of the mounts, I did not make any other changes. In order to give the adhesive a little more surface area to adhere to, I used a rotary tool with a 1/4" carving bit to carve some grooves into the surface.

In order to prepare the surface, you need to do it right
After doing a lot of research, this product is a real proof that you don't have to drill holes when installing solar panels. I am very pleased with the product. It is strong and well built. It appears that the adhesive has a lot of surface area to work with. Despite the fact that they are hollow, it would be better if they weren't in the hollow form. I thought the instructions were a little unclear. After researching, I discovered that 3M vhb tape was the go-to product for setting up drill free. As a result, I bought some 3M VHB tape 4950, Sikaflex and eternal bond tape to hold it in place. Natural alcoholic beverages are also available. Previously prepped surfaces can be sanded with sand paper. **AS A NOTE. It is crucial to prepare the surface and have a clean surface for the bond to work. I would have done better surface preparation if I had a chance to do it all over again. (I'm glad I didn't vhb or sikaflex the legs to the panel before putting it on the roof. Because of my roof's slight pitch, I had to take off a few legs and re-screw them so that all the legs were flush with My first step was to put the legs on the roof panels. My second step was to put vhb tape on the bases of After the roof is well cleaned, let it dry, mark the corners, peel the VHB Tape, set it, press and seal with Sikaflex. It took a couple of days for it to dry and cure, then I added some eternabond tape as a precaution. Additionally, when I installed my panels, I didn't get to seal the back of the legs because they were mounted on the bracket to the bottom of the leg. The inside area of that door will be sealed with a spray sealant like Flex Seal.

This product is used on the roof of Thor Vegas RVs
As you can see, these drills My 26ft RV was fitted with two 100 watt panels mounted with less mounts without any problem. It has now travelled over 2,000 miles with no movement using the adhesive Amazon recommended. You don't need to drill through the roof to install it. On Monday, 9/2019 The distance traveled by this vehicle has now exceeded I am still holding strong with the Sikaflex adhesive-*2/2/2020 Over 7,000 miles have been traveled.

Use SikaFlex 252 at your own risk
According to the instructions from the Renogy tech desk, I stuck them to the roof of my van using SikaFlex 252. It wasn't until I got home that I realized the center section had come loose and flown off. The Renogy customer service representative told me that the brackets are only sold as sets and would not be covered by their policy. A customer service email was sent and I received the typical response that I would hear back from them. Naturally, they didn't do that either. Being able to sleep better knowing the brackets and panels will not slam into a windshield is a huge relief! Having their wring gland break off of the Sikaflex was also a problem. It was fortunately caught Renogy's customer service is terrible, as the end result shows. To hold them down, you can use fasteners or VHB tape.

In my roof there were no holes drilled
I have purchased these a second time. To allow the brackets to tilt to follow the curve of the RV roof, I pilot drill and use self-tapping screws to screw them loosely to the solar panels. After placing the panels and the side brackets, I apply the 3M VHB tape to the bottom of the Once the panels are unscrewed, I leave the brackets in place so I can remove the panels. Following this, I use Sikaflex 252 adhesive to seal the entire circumference, and maybe a little on the flat areas as well. Once the brackets are set on the panels, I put them on. Once the screws are all in place, I finish by tightening them. Then, after it has cured for a couple of weeks, I cover everything with Dicor self leveling sealant to protect it. There is no doubt that the panels are welded together and are extremely durable. With these brackets, you can put your panels low enough so that they can be aerodynamic but keep cool by allowing air below to flow beneath them. A roof that is fully intact is better than one that is drilled dozens of holes. Using the bathroom vent pipe (accessed from the wall) as the cable exit point, the solar cables were run down and out the side (drilled and sealed) of the roof without creating any new holes. This is a recommendation I would like to give.

With the right adhesive materials and preparation, there can be a solid no drilling mounting solution
I mounted a 175 watt solar panel on the roof of my motorhome. Initially, the roof was flat along its length, but curved across its width. To overcome this curve, I mounted the brackets on the roof first, then the solar panel on top. As a result of the roof curve, the panel will not fit perfectly flat on the mounts, but you can easily fix this by applying adhesive foam tape to the top of the mounts underneath the panel, and using self-taping screws on the sides in order In the event that the panel needs to be replaced, it can also be easily removed. Add 1/4 inch to adjust for the curve as you draw the outer dimensions on the roof as if the mounts with the panel were installed. The preparation is the most important step in mounting the gear. Use a mixture of 5% alcohol and 50% water to clean the surfaces. Using 3M VHB tape universal primer uv, apply to both the bottom and the roof of the brackets. To attach the brackets to the roof, attach 3M VHB 4950 tape to the underside of the bracket. Make sure all the inside dimensions are checked and confirmed before attaching so that once the mounts are attached, they will not the mounts with Sikaflex 221 sealant/adhesive and set the solar panel in it. Drill and screw the side screws to secure the solar panel in place. It's all done now.

The mounting brackets are excellent
This is the perfect solution I was looking for to mount solar panels to an utility trailer before a cross-country In order to avoid drilling holes in the trailer I decided not to do it if I didn't absolutely need to, so I opted for these. According to another reviewer's suggestion, I mounted the panels first to the brackets, and then I mounted the entire assembly to the trailer's roof. The following is what I have already done To attach the panels to the brackets, drill holes in them, and then fasten them with self-tapping screws. My next step was to use I glued them all up and ripped out the bejesus. The items all look to be really sturdy and well made. There are no words to describe how highly I.
