Solar and bike rack inquiry

Greetings: my wife and I have had many campers over the years, but this is our first RV with the go power solar system and a Maytag refrigerator without the gas option. it came with one deep cycle marine battery, but I immediately added the second battery. I am interested in pros and cons relative to the use of the solar system, the RV Maytag refrigerator, and also interested if anyone has comments on adding a bike rack to the rear of the E-Pro as opposed to the front tongue.

I thought thr EPro/GeoPro trailers didn't have a rear bumper.
Or am I thinking of No Boundaries trailers?

Solar/bike rack

Thanks for your response. Youíre right, it does not have a bumper, but I thought there may be a frame rail to frame rail bike rack that may be available. My wife and I have a little difficult time taking the bikes on and off the front hitch bike rack. I just donít want to do something that would jeopardize the warranty.

As an avid cyclist, you would need to have a welder fabricate a receiver welded and braced to the frame. But this modification will void the frame warranty.
