Shading question

I mounting several panels on top of my RV, there are a few boxes mounted up there like Fans & AC's.

the max height is 11 inches, about how far away to try and stay out of the shadow would you estimate I mount the panels ( they are going to be 2" high with mounting brackets so the net height will be 9"

can't say where located because we're on the move

    How far south are you?   Look at the solar array angle calculator in a recent post started by PhotoWhit
