Looking for advice on a second battery and solar panel

Hi all recently purchased a '14 Sport 22fb and I'm looking to get it dialled in.I was wondering if anyone has added a 2nd battery and how they wired it. Second I'm now in the market for some solar panels, any advice on wattage? or brand setup? are there AS specific roof mounted or are the folding kits the way to go?

Thanks for ay info

I added a second battery in parallel with the original. They're both Costco / Interstate Deep Cycle Marines - nothing special.

I've got (2) 100 watt Renogy monocrystalline panels on the roof; the battery and panel combination has worked well.

You're lucky that Lewster is up in your part of the world; he's like the world's expert on Airstream solar setups.
