    I did not vent mine. We get pretty extreme temperatures here (-18 to 40) in the winter. I had no condensation problems. I did leave the power to my
    power supplies on and also added a c-7 bulb next to my BBB. I had some problems with the BBB that I think was temperature related, after the c-7 install I had no problems the rest of the season.

    Interesting. I live in Kansas City Missouri and just the other day it was 60 degrees. We have an ice storm coming in tomorrow. I'm running a Pi with Ron's Matrix. I also will let it run from Thanksgiving night through December 31. I can compliment everyone here enough for their help in getting me straightened out. I love this forum and the hobby.

Do I need to vent the panel?

    I did 1/8" acrylic on a 4h x 3w and think you would be fine there too.


    Edit: I'm power (fan) venting out top back above ps with filtered inlets at bottom. I made a stand that keeps it up and out of the water

    I run a flag on the 4th at 90 plus degree

    Mine will be hung over the garage about 8-9 feet above ground. Something to think about adding the fan.

    How far from the plexiglass should the panels be? I was thinking mine would be about 1/4" from glass.

    Thank you. I have my enclosure almost done. Have to order the plexiglass. Lowes and Home Depot doesn't carry 1/4" at the size I need.

    I may just introduce a fan just for circulation.

    Thought I would add a couple of pics showing the back of mine.
