Solar land solar panels advice

We are getting rid of our renogy flexible panels and thinking about fixed framed, two solar panels. We are looking at two solar land 55 watts. Anyone have any good product reviews on this or other brands. Any advice welcomed. We have no A/C but refrigerator.

Re: Solar land solar panels advice

I just replaced two 85 watt panels with two 160 watt panels. The Alder Barber refrig unit, CU 200, pulls 8 amps, with water cooling. The new panels will keep up with this load on a bright sunny day. The panels are laid almost flat on top of the cockpit bimini and under the mizzen boom. I plan on one panel being in partial shade at any given time.
