Issue

On certain motorhomes, the fasteners which secure the 20W solar panel to the roof-mounted air conditioner may loosen over time. This could allow the solar panel to separate from the vehicle and strike another vehicle, a stationary object, or a bystander, causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will install locking nuts and apply thread locking compound in order to secure the solar panel.
