What is Needed to Connect the Solar Panel to My Battery Bank  


Im looking at item34282610, 200watt portable solar panel. It shows a male 2 pin adapter that hooks to the solar panel. Do you have the female connector part that this plugs into that would mount on my RV which then would wire to my batteries. If so I need that part number. Thank You.

It sounds like you are trying to add an after market solar prep package to your RV. We do not have the parts needed to accomplish that and the Go Power Portable Solar Panel with Digital Solar Controller # 34282610 does not include the parts you would need for that. However the # 34282610 does come with the necessary connectors to attach to your batteries with or without a prep package. The 2 pin adapter you are referring to is the XLR-style plug which is used if your RV already has a prep package for solar using that style of plug. The same can be said for the SAE solar plug. If your RV does not have a prep package for solar, which it sounds like that is the case. That is ok too, because then you can use the battery clamps or the battery terminals (for a more permanent attachment) to attach to your batteries. I have included a video that touches on the different connectors at about the 2:05 mark.

The Extension Cable for Go Power Portable Solar Kit # 34270356 is a 30' extension should you need more cable to get from your solar panels to your batteries.
