How to: Simple Solar Panel System (Boat, RV, etc.) (Ep. 18)

A few viewers have asked about my two solar panels in the cockpit of my sailboat. In this episode, I explain how I set up my solar system. It’s super easy. Enjoy! #Sailing #SVGiraffe

Here is an Amazon link to the rail clamps I used to attached the panels to my boat’s railing:

Also, here is a link to the adjustable poles I used:

(Note: if you are handy, you could drill two more holes in the poles to give the panels more position options. So, instead of the 3 positions I showed in the video, you could drill two more holes to create 5 total positions with less severe angle differences.) 👍
