The basic solar-charging system consists of roof-mounted solar panels running through a combiner box, then dropping down to the charge controller and on to the batteries. Solar is typically a supplement that works seamlessly with shorepower or generator (if so equipped).
A good choice in solar panels for RV use are the monocrystalline type show here. The standard mono panels have all the wire traces showing. Back-contact mono panels (on far left) have clean black squares. Back-contact mono panels are slightly more efficient; thus, they have a smaller footprint for the equivalent output.
