Dual Solar Tilt Mount question...

We have four solar panels on our GD 399TH. They're great; love 'em. But I can't tip them. So, winter boondocking, when the sun is low in the south tilting would be a great feature.

However... almost EVERY tilt mechanism I see is just "one way". Generally tilted toward the curb side of the rig. That's fine for the desert, but... we do a lot of Xscaper events, where we're boondocking, but we can't always pick the direction we park like we could in the general desert.

Someone out there HAS to have found a dual directional tilt setup for RV solar panels. Where you can choose which direction you're tilting to. Bonus points for something with a powered remote so I don't have to climb up there!

If you've got a product suggestion, I would love to hear it.

It appears as though brackets sold by Renogy and others can tilt in both directions.

You can ad more panels and not worry about tipping them. I have 10 100 watt panels in two rows, one per side and two charge controllers, one for each side.
I never worry about which way the sun is shinning.
