Flagstaff 23ss (2015): interior l.e.d. Lighting

Does anyone know the wattage/amp rating for the interior,ceiling lite I this model? Trying to calculate the total wattage I would be using in dry camping on a daily basis so I could purchase the correct solar panel(s) to recharge my 2- batteries.9

Wattage % Volts = Amps
Amps X Volts = Wattage
One other thing to keep in mind is many RV appliances require more amps to start the appliance than they do to run the appliance. A roof air conditioner can draw 16 amps to start, but may only use 13 amps once it is running.

Hopefully this clears up any confusion on the difference between using amps supplied by the campground electrical source (AC amps), and using amps supplied by the converter (DC Amps).
Happy Camping!
