If you replace the wires going from the roof into the trailer then you might want to consider 10 or even 8 gauge. This will reduce voltage drop losses and allow you to add more panels later.


If you need to connect 2 panels in parallel then these Y-connectors are better than most. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NJDZZZ1

All the best,

Hey PCMeC, When checking your controller for charging status, are you plugged into shore power and/or is the 7 pin connector from your TW plugged into your trailer? If so, those two situations will override the solar power charging.
