Keeping the plastic protection on there for a long time on the sun will cause you headaches later. I’ve seen the on new hatches that had been installed and the boat
was in the yard getting other work
done. 3 months of baking later the plastic started shredding from the exposure. Near impossible to peel because the plastic would rip apart and the heat made the adhesive
really hold tight to the windows.
In my opinion, you are over thinking this. The engineers that designed your panels
have put more time and effort into making the panels
UV and heat resistant while also producing the most electricity. KISS.
