Put the solar panels up! FINALLY! It's been a long time in the making, but I've been waiting for a) a day where I have the time and b) there are folk to help me out. My lady has recently come off of contract work so she's been around and we had a friend over this morning as well. Perfect opportunity!
I built a quick and dirty ramp to slide the panels up:
Here's a panel loaded onto the dolly portion of the ramp. I made a dolly so I wouldn't scuff up the paint on the panel frame. Ropes are tied to the upper portion so I can pull from the roof of the bus and the two helpers can push from the ground.
And the forward panel is on the roof. Next step: walk the ramp towards the rear where the second panel will reside.
Both panels are up. If it weren't for the ladder to the right you'd think I was just playing on the snowy ground!
