Unless you are handy and interested in doing some research you probably should find someone in your area to do the install. For solar you need 3 primary items:
1) solar panels, either portable or roof mount
2) solar controller. Connects the panels to the controller and controller to the battery (s)
3) wiring for the above

The controller regulates the voltage coming off the solar cells.

Forgive lack of knowledge please
SAE Polarity adaptor for the Zamp portable panels. It goes on the supply line from the panel to the Airstream.

You can see it on the end of my 7-pin adaptor.

For the Zamp Suitcase the "Controller" is what you see mounted on the frame behind the panel.



Suitcase...


FWIW...I still take the Honda.😂

Trying to connect Renogy portable to 7 pin so bought a Go Power 7 pin adapter from Airstream store. But connector is Anderson and mine is MC4. So, next I got a Anderson to MC4 adapter but the Anderson was tiny compared to 7 pin Anderson female

Do you make your own 7 pin to SAE plug?
