The 2.5-Watt Solar Battery Charger # PTW2997 is a great option for your solar charging needs on the go. This product will not completely supply the needs of your Furrion camera system but can be used along with a battery to charge the battery so the battery can power the unit. I recommend the Redarc In-Vehicle BCDC Battery Charger - Dual Input - DC to DC - 12V/24V - 25 Amp # 331-BCDC1225D which will allow you to have power from a solar panel amplified and will amplify the trailer battery charge while towing as well. This will give priority to the solar energy to charge your batteries for use on whatever you desire to connect to that 12V power. I've attached a couple videos to assist. This system will work with any solar panels like the hiking pack you mentioned or the larger panels like # 287-32408 as well.

I didn't catch that you had the prewired solar connection. On your Grand Design Momentum trailer, the Furrion Solar port # FSPINS-BS only fits with the male connector that comes on their solar suitcase. We had issues with that product so we don't carry it and they don't have a connector available as a separate part. I reached out to them directly to confirm this.

If you want to wire a different unit like the Goal Zero solar panels, you will need to create a different adapter like the 2-Pole Socket Connector # PK12801 and the 2-Pole Trailer Wiring Connector # PK12800. If you change the connector, you can make most solar panels compatible. The factory wiring has an inline fuse that actually reduces the amperage to 7.5, so you may want to adjust that if you do some rewiring to include a different amperage based on your panels.

I have a Keystone fifth wheel RV. It has a furrion 10 amp solar port connection to the battery. Do you carry solar panels and a plug to fit this?

We actually have a few solar panel kits that can hook right up to the factory Furrion 10 amp solar connection on your trailer, but I think the Go Power Portable System # 34282730 in particular is a really good match. The panel features an output of 6.74 amps and the included XLR plug is directly compatible with the Furrion inlet on your Keystone.
