They are usually on the side of the camper labeled solar and some have it on the roof. Its more for a trickle charge, your not gonna run the camper off solar that way

I have a new 2018 forest river 311, mine is in the compartment where the sat/cable tv hookups are there is a plug that says solar, I assume this is to plug in a panel just to charge batteries. I have never used it because it is so new, I assume all i have to do is buy a solar panel to trickle charge

Good afternoon and thank you for your purchase of the Wildcat Maxx T30DBH. The Wildcat Maxx uses a roof mounted solar prep that can hold up to 400 watts of panels. The wires for the control panel have been dropped through the ceiling and into the wood paneled wall to the right of the pantry. You should be able to cut a hole in the panel about 5’ up from the floor.
Hopefully this helps.

Hey Steve, not to hijack this thread, but do you know the wire locations in a 2017 Wildcat Maxx 24RG?
