Concise Solar "prewire" info for 16' Bambi

Howdy - We have a 2015 16' Bambi that we've spent 5-6 very fun trips in. We'd like to add 100w or so of Solar Power to keep us charged for the boon docking times. we are pretty thrifty users, so keeping the house battery fresh is the main objective. I've poured over the forums and read "Handybobsolar" blog completely as well. wow.

SO, what I can't seem to discover is the simple path to adding a flexible panel, charge controller, and what ever else isn needed to our prewired trailer. I'd like to keep the Battery topped up in storage as well. Do any of you have a simplified description or video explaining the efforts on similar rigs?

Also - Any knowledge of decent installers in Chicagoland?

If you're only interested in 100 W, you might consider the portable systems by Renology or Go Power. These can be easily carried in your TV when you anticipate boondocking and won't break your budget.
