input

Sounds like the rv has your name on it. If you like it, thats 90% of the decision . You are smart to ask others though, Go for it and enjoy. You'll figure the other stuff out along the way.

you need an inverter to run the tv and dvd. and there's no way you can run a microwave with only 2 batteries except for maybe a minute and your batteries will be empty.
you do understand that you need shore power or generator to have power to the 110v AC outlets, right?
and only by plugging into an inverter, that you could run the tv and dvd on 12v battery power.

from what i've read, a 150 watt solar panel will only trickle charge the batteries. has nothing to do with powering the 110v outlets or things like a microwave.
strictly recharging batteries.

By now you should be staring at your 2011 29bhs in your driveway. Sounds like a well kept one by your description. Is this the extralite (term used excessively in rvs of all brands and weights) version of the travel trailer not fifth wheel?

One last note, Be certain that the weight label on trailer accurately relects the weight capacity of the axles, there is a label on them both, Very important on some tt of your model 2011 29bhs, as some were mislabeled.
