Solar help

We have just purchased a ForestRiver 2019 A122SESP and upgraded to 2 6v batteries. Can anyone tell me what solar panels to get? We are very new at this, and are just seeking some advice. Thanks very much in advance.

I would suggest 100 watt minimum. There are some decent kit (suitcase style) solar panels out there.
Depending on how much you're willing to spend, try to find one with a MPPT charge controller.
Or if you're handy, you can piece one together and get what you want/need.
If you go this way, get a MPPT charge controller capable of handling 300-400 watts, this way if you decide to up your panel count/wattage you won't have to buy a new controller.

I hope this helps. This is more of a "everyone's input is different" topic.

I just purchased a Renogy kit that came with a 100w panel and a 30 amp controller (can handle up to 400w). I added another 100w panel - so at 200w is enough to keep my two 6v batteries charged in the CA sun. Cost about $300. There is also a nice Renogy App and add-on bluetooth module which allows you to monitor the solar panel output and battery status.
