Added Solor Panel

Currently I have a 2018 Tommy Bahama 19 ft with the AS solar package and AMG batteries. All is fine but I would like to add an additional panel to the roof and also purchase a set of portable panels for shade locations. My Questions are as follows: 1. can I just purchase an additional solar panel and plug it into the three-outlet junction box located on the roof? 2.Do I need to change the standard inverter to do this? I will be sticking with the AMG batteries. 3. What would be the simplest plug and play suitcase panels to purchase? Do they need a separate controller? 4. When I do all of this, is there any requirement to upgrade any of the factory wiring in the AS? Thanks in advance for your help on these questions.

I am not sure on the additional roof panel. I do know the portable panel will need a controller. Some portable solar panels do have a controller built in, if the panel you get does not have a controller built in you can use a stand alone controller. I have a Bluetti power bank and have a solar panel with that. I have not hooked it up to the airstream yet because it does not have a controller. I am looking for the best option also.

I am interested in learning about the roof panel. I am wanting to add another panel to my Basecamp
