Solar Cell 8528 5th wheel?

Has anyone mounted solar cells on the roof of an 8528 5th wheel?

Does anyone know if the factory has reinforced the ceiling framing for this already, or is there some wiring already installed that I can take advantage of?

Planning to mount 400-500 watts of panels. That would be 2x200 watt panels, or 4-5x100 watt panels. We've already installed another Group 31 battery in a vented box, so now have 200+ amp hours of stored reserve to run 12v during the evenings. Need 40-50 watts of input during the day to top these off, and run a 36 watt LED TV set when we're in the Shenandoah National Park (no electricity..).
