Recommended Add On Solar Panel for 2019 Forest River Rockwood Geo Pro

Question:

My Geo Pro 19 camper is equipped with one solar panel and has an outlet on the side of the camper to add more solar panels. I need guidance in deciding which panels to add wattage and instructions for doing so. Is it a simple plug-in or will someone have to wire it for me?

Expert Reply:

How many panels you need is going to depend on how much power you typically use, what types of appliances you're running and what size your battery bank is. If your trailer already has a solar system, you'll likely be able to mount the panels and plug straight in, since there would already be an inverter present. In most cases, something like the Go Power Retreat # 34272635 would be a good fit for you as long as you've got 2 batteries on your coach.

I've linked some helpful videos and articles that I recommend checking out that tell you how to calculate what your solar needs are. If you can check those out and let me know how many batteries you've got in your battery bank, I can give you a better idea of what might work for you if the Retreat kit mentioned above won't keep your batteries charged.

Question:

Is there an add on panel to use with this if we have an existing system with the controller already?

Yes! If you've already for a 100w panel system like the # 34272635, you can use the Go Power Solar Flex Expansion Kit - 100 Watt Solar Panel # 34272629 to add just the panel.
