They say about 100 watts per 100 amps of battery so I guess 200 plus for two golf cart 6's and with the second set, at least 400. We run three group 24s and so about 240 amps of battery with 200 watts of solar and our camping partners have 400 on the roof with 4 6's. We both have the Onan 4.0 gens but hardly use them unless we need the AC, lengthy use of the microwave (it warms stuff fine just on the inverter) or use of the convection oven.
Are you running a residential frig in the 30DS? Absent that, you should have a ton of power with the 4 batteries for now, but the solar brings it all together. Gone with the WINNS on YouTube have a great video on how their 6 panels were installed. They used the rather pricey GoPower 160 watt panels but seeing it get installed is interesting. We used a WindyNation.com 200 panel set for just over $300 and it has been great and with their slightly upgraded charge controller there is capacity for 200 watts more.
