Factory solar preside

Anybody know if '08 internationals came prewired for solar panels? I have a 27FB and would like to install a panel or two.

My 2008 Classic 25fb has a bundle of wires marked solar in the electric box that encloses the Store/Use relay and battery buses. Check in there and if you find them your AS should be ready.

My understanding on this issue is the pre-wired set up is inadequate for a really efficient solar panel set up and that heavier gauge wire must be pulled regardless of the factory set up. But, i am certain someone with expertise will confirm this and offer some thoughts about how to get a solar power source which meets your needs.
Happy trails and Good Luck
