Juice Pack Solar Wire Gauge?

My 2021 264DBH came installed with the Juice Pack (50W Solar Panel, Small PWM solar controller) no battery [this will be a separate discussion on shady dealers].

does anyone know what is the gauge of wire coming from the roof gland to the solar controller? I am looking to add more solar and connect a MPPT controller but wanted to know what the stock wiring can handle before I upgraded the system.

I do not know if FR changed the type of wire along the run from the roof to the controller in the storage bin.

Thank you.

Don't know your situation, but based on other models, the wire installed is likely to be too small. If you plan to add any reasonable amount of solar I would upgrade the wiring.

I don't know what gauged wire the controller has but they are small and the controller system is only rated for 10 amps. My 2021 274WK came with the Waree system and I have attached the owner;s manual.
