Solar charging?

30' 2020 Classic stored under cover no power source from sun or plug in electric.
My question is can a small external solar panel be plugged into the Zamp connection next to the battery box for charging while in storage. If so does it need a solar controller with the panel or just another panel since the system has a controller with the built in panel on top of the trailer.
Any suggestions appreciated.

I believe the OEM Zamp connector on the AS goes directly to the batts, no controller. A small trickle solar could be used there. A larger Zamp suitcase with a built in controller could deliver more.
