HHPJ a handsome man like myself.
I used the Zamp outlet attached to the battery box on our Airstream. Purchased the Costco 120 watt solar panel with controller for about $120. Delivered to our door, even at OUR home and not the neighbors.
Took the Zamp Solar Plug, that came with the International. Used the Zamp wiring that was not used with the installation at Airstream Las Vegas's two 80 watt panels installed as an option. Clipped off the clamps on one end and wired things up.
Spliced the controller within the battery compartment, to the Zamp outlet box, wired the +/-, correctly as well, sat the 120 watt Solar Panel outside the garage door, leaning against an 'antique plastic garage sale milk crate' with some weight... and BINGO... it worked.
If you can read simple instructings like HHPJ and myself, follow the + and - colored wires, the Zamp only plugs in ONE WAY... sweat over these small details, recheck and you saved yourself $900?, more or less.
Took $40 of that 'saved money' to the Casino yesterday to the nickel Video Poker that takes 90 cents for three hands...
Lost the entire $40. But... it was not my money, it was saved money from installing a Solar Panel myself.
As P.T. Barnum did not say, A Solar Panel Installer is Born Every Minute. It took me a number of decades after they were invented, but if I can do it... anyone can.
