Kingham Solar panels - can they be fitted

Post by melcragg on Tue Apr 11, 2017 2:34 pm

Hi all. 

I realise there isn't much roof space on a Kingham but have any of you installed a solar panel?

Do any of you know of a good installer who will fit properly - with no resultant leaks, rust and properly integrate with the Sargent panel in the van? 

Thanks.

New Kinghams have the option of an 80w panel so there must be somewhere to fit one. To be honest, I thought all AS's  had at least a 30w one fitted for the last few years.

Easy answer. Phone Mark at A/S Service Dept. He will be able to advise at once.

Agree with Gromit. AS fitted ours. Seemed to do a neat job and it works.

Yes sadly missed. That picture was taken at the Eastbourne Airshow in 2015.

In the early 60s and 70s, I use to live with my parents in Lincoln, just off Newark Road. Roaring Vulcans were common place, seen rising into the sky, taking off from Waddington, up on the hill. I miss them too, great planes.

Hello everyone,I'm new to the forum.
I had a solar panel fitted at AS 3 weeks ago along with two TV brackets (didn't want to drill the van just yet). 
£400 inc vat. Had a flatscreen repaired,microwave housing done and the freshwater under sill clip refastened,all under warranty. Still got the bungee cord on though,don't trust the clip.
