Looking for solar panel mount for...

Hi All, Long time! After replacing my AC Unit (more on that later) I need to find some brackets and a new solar panel to replace the 25w stock one that I had. I put an Airxcel 08-0214 472038876 Mach 8 Plus 13.5 Arctic White on the roof so am looking for brackets I can mount to it with a mating panel that will work with the stock controller on my 2019 Arctic Fox 990. The 25w panel worked fine for us but it appears there are some similar sized 50-60 watt panels that would mount on the AC unit just fine, or I could move the panel off the AC unit (keep it lower), just don't want to swap out the controller yet and am not sure it's rating (haven't looked up it's max yet). Any help appreciated. Thanks!

RE: This is what happens when you have too much tongue weight...

I was interested in this and did a bunch of research. What I found was that this is a common problem when there is too much tongue weight and the roads are rough (with some cases involving northern salted roads and rust). I found pics of Toyota's, Nissan's, Fords, Dodges and even an old Chevy all with the same issue as well as a whole thread on problems with Chevy frames from the early 2000's to at least 2013. In the end it appeared to be too much tongue weight / trailer weight and too rough of roads. it appears that you could get away with all sorts of things on good roads but hit the potholes hard enough and life changes when you are way overloaded.
