Small wattage Solar charger

Would appreciate if you could inform me the Make, Model and where you acquired the small Solar charger you have mounted above the top of the propane cover.
Thanks

I got it at camping world but I've seen this size other places. It's only 2 watts but even with the battery disconnected there is a natural drain over time. This pretty much keeps the battery ready to go. My trailer may sit as much as 8 to 10 weeks but the battery will still run my refrigerator and manage all the other drains when I turn it all on the afternoon before I head out. But if your battery is dead this solar cell will not charge it. It just maintains the battery.

If I install a disconnect switch it will disconnect the battery, Period. To have one that doesn't disconnect the battery is a Total Waste. IMHO
